CALCULATED: Heavens to Betsy exhibition looking for contributors

The Rupture Series and artist Katie Hare are proud to present ‘Calculated,’ a sound and video installation as homage to riot grrrl band Heavens to Betsy’s first and only album.

Over three days, Calculated will play in the cells at The Old Police Station alongside archive footage of the band and an accompanying zine, containing personal writings by the artist, curators and selected contributors.
‘Calculated’ will be exhibited as an historical artefact and snapshot of the precise moment that an individual’s belief system is shattered; a young person becoming politicised through punk music and confronting their position in society. The viewer/subject is invited to take a step back and focus on the spectacle of the searing honesty of the lyrics, and the intensity of youthful conviction and coming of age whilst in the confinement of a single police cell. The art work is an affectionate tribute to ‘riot-grrrl’, the fascinating youth movement that is in equal parts revered and reviled.
