'(Matriarchal) Reliquary'

2019

 

Inspired by the reliquary that homage martyrs and sainted people, Doyle undertakes a durational performance that investigates matriarchal documentation.

MANIFESTO:

Doyle will commit to the action of documenting the female body as venerated reliquary via ceramic tombs.

 

Doyle will perform this action annually for twenty years, starting 13.7.2019.

 

Doyle will select a consenting woman annually due to their virtuous and inspiring conduct.

 

Doyle archives this action as a means to counter Catholic patriarchal doctrine which infantilizes the female experience and constitutes women as misbegotten beings
