“There are many ways to cheat at squash, most of them subtle and often undetectable. The question, ultimately, is not just how badly one wants to win, but what sort of victory is consonant with one’s dignity”.
Laurence Shames, The New York Times
Squash is politeness, tension and aggression in a confined space; full of ego yet obscure and absurd. Associated with the spectacular excess of the 1980s, no longer popular enough to be considered an Olympic sport.
Artist Meg Wilson, continues her fascination with sports-based durational art events, in her new work SQUASH!, a live art work exploring grandiosity, narcissism and deceit. During Adhocracy, Meg and her team will explore the dramaturgy and design of the work, and test modes of audience engagement.
