For the first exhibition of Satellites Programme 2015, Georgia presented a research project about the proliferation of the textile industry in Scotland, and how this affected patterns of witch hunting in the seventeenth century. Using Caliban and The Witch by Italian feminist-Marxist scholar Silvia Federici as a central text, the research proposed how Scotland can be understood as a compelling model for her ideas that underline the inextricable connection between primitive accumulation and the disciplining of the female body.
The exhibition took the form of a workroom, which contained writing, images and artifacts. From here, the space was used to house a series of events and screenings, discussing how women, the body and labour are implicated in contemporary capitalism.
Georgia developed Machine Room as part of Satellites Programme during her post as Associate Producer.
Satellites Programme is Collective’s development programme for emergent artists and producers based in Scotland. 2015 participants were: Georgia Horgan, Thomas Aitchison, France-Lise McGurn, Scott Rogers and Hardeep Pandhal
