Spekyng Rybawdy, 2022
Spekyng Rybawdy is Melanie Jackson’s ongoing project exploring the transgressive narratives and explicit symbolism of Medieval pilgrim ‘bawdy' badges. Through a carnival of colourful, erotically charged characters, Spekyng Rybawdy encourages us to re-examine not only our ideas about who took part in the production and circulation of imagery in the medieval period - but also how this might enable us to reconsider the origins of dissenting representations, sexual politics and our attitudes and behaviours today. Join the parade of these joyfully itinerant and powerfully subversive characters drawn out of medieval obscurity and into the flickering light of 21st Century gender politics, sexual diversity, structures of desire, social reproduction, consumption, power and State.
