Breeder or Sucker EP.3/10. CHARLOTTE is hungover on the way to the performance class meeting. She gets off to a bad start with new student YOUNG MAN, whom she mistakes for a homeless person. CHARLOTTE makes a new friend, another new member of the performance class, EYVONNE. EYVONNES's they/them pronouns causes unnecessary confusion when CHARLOTTE tries to get them to come to two parties in one night, so as not to have FOMO, which leads to FRIEND 6 getting upset, and CHARLOTTE and FRIEND 1 have their first big fight.
Breeder or Sucker is a series of comedic feminist episodes, watching a group of people who are struggling to secure an education; to be offered exhibitions; and to get laid. Charlotte Gash has written, directed, edited, and stared in the show, along side artists, acting as artists, presenting it back, to the art world. Gash combines critique of the everyday with her own personal experiences of the art world, creating semi-autobiographical narratives and counter-narratives, following the lives of people in the art world, which open up discussions around working as a contemporary artist. The scripts satirise situations of privilege, expectation, and disappointment, what failure is and what failure means. The ongoing feminist series, Breeder or Sucker, watches Gash explore areas of privilege and failure in the art system, cameoing as the artist alongside a cast of recurring characters, including her art nemesis ART BITCH. Always using humour and satire (and cardboard), Breeder or Sucker unapologetically comments on female sexuality, humorously criticising “the restrictive and reductive definition of what part is assigned to each person, whether homosexual or heterosexual…breeder or sucker.” (Wojnarowicz, 2006). Gash opens up conversations about stereotypical images of the artist, combining earnestness and irreverence to distinguish the impossibilities of administration and bureaucracy in which art institutions are embedded, allowing for the many ideas of the artist to circulate nevertheless.
