In an exploration of queer politics through the medium of architecture and architexture, the Villa Design Group ventures into the avant garde. In this anthology of poetry, design, sketch, song, geography, theater, and more, the Villa Design Group has managed to reference the histories implicit in fashion, literature, and the arts while simultaneously composing a universe of their own. Repertory invites us into this universe – where queer object(ivitie)s offer the radical possibility of a world independent of the subjectivity of the bodies within it.
Villa Design Group creates sculptures, videos, and scripted performances inspired by the formal languages of architecture, theater, and the decorative arts. The London-based collective—comprised of Than Hussein Clark, James Connick, and William Joys—seeks to create a “theater of design” inhabited by “queer objects.” These objects are embedded in speculative narratives that ask what it might mean for a thing, not a person, to be queer today.
