A Four Letter Word takes the viewer step-by-step through the arduous audition process for reality television, from invasive questionnaires, police checks, STI and personality tests, to meetings with executive producers and psychologists. 

A Four Letter Word is a raw, and somewhat absurd account of the artist’s foray into this strange cultural phenomenon. Follow along as the artist attempts to understand what it is that has us all tuning in—or perhaps more accurately tuning out—to reality television, in our obsession with finding true love.

Georgia Banks is a performance artist exploring sociological attitudes towards feminism and female sexuality. Her works begin with an invitation and a provocation. Sometimes they are met with an overwhelming response, sometimes no one answers at all. She does not value either of these outcomes over the other. 

Georgia Banks is a current studio artist at Gertrude Contemporary. Her work has recently been exhibited at Brisbane’s Metro Arts, Gertrude Contemporary, as part of South Australia’s Feminist Renewal Art Network Festival, Melbourne’s Festival of Live Art, Melbourne Fringe Festival, and at New York’s Parson’s School of Design.

A Four Letter Word is supported by Yarra City Arts.
