a monstrous family of reluctant belonging

An assertion of the reality of transgenerational haunting and entanglement, “a monstrous family of reluctant belonging” catapults you into an unsettling world of ghostly hauntings. Just as we are haunted by our ancestors’ trauma collapsing into our own experience of the world, we inherit the trauma of others when we confront the role we’ve played in it. Thriving in the forgotten storage space of a permanently closed Peacocks, this monstrous family not only personifies the trauma of former staff through their ghosts, but also the trauma of former shoppers through the ghosts that have seeped into the fitting room mirrors. When we enter as viewers we can’t help but be entangled, recruited into this ever-growing monstrous family of reluctant belonging.
