SOMETHING TO BE SCARED OF is the title of the second chapter of Julia Kristeva’s ‘Powers of Horror: An Essay on Abjection’ (1982), which considers the relationship between fear and language.

Fear precedes text, Kristeva writes, it is ‘proto-writing’, but is also the name given to expression that cannot be interpreted or sensibly codified in adult, proper, masculine language.

SOMETHING TO BE SCARED OF is situated in the spaces between texts, bodies, desire, and fear. Keogh presents a cluster of small sculpture and collages arranged in the form of a prototype control panel used to navigate a performance out of the present. The movement of zippers in Noonan-Ganley’s video and textile work trace exposure and seclusion arising from the dresses and homoerotic drawings of the couturier Charles James. Stupart's video and performance works write a dialogue between the disappearing polar ice caps (as melting, dissipating body) and the appearance of crystals and fibres under people's skin (as in Morgellons condition).
