Alongside our positioning in Europe post Brexit, the American 2020 election and its impact on the UK, we see further complexities to our so-called 'special relationship'. During uncertain times and amongst the deep-rooted pervasiveness of western individualism, American visual and popular culture, the desire to retreat into worlds of fantasy offer sanctuary for some.
The Flesh & the Fantasy explores British individuals and communities who adopt alternative lifestyles and asks what it means to appropriate additional cultural traits whilst maintaining a sense of identity, belonging, community and home.
