It's been that way since (2020)
Karl Murphy is a multidisciplinary artist currently living in London. As a queer person Their work uses different mediums to explore the relationship between language, power and the proximity/performativity of self in relation to this. 
Their performance “It's been this way since” seeks to question the relevance of a national collection during a time of crisis. Disrupt the Eurocentric narrative of these works, question the role and relationship of the institution to queer bodies and challenge western cultural hierarchy. 
All of the dancers within the work are part of Harpies the UK’S first LGBTQI+ Strip Club (@harpiesinthesky). These dancers are currently hosting live streams of dances every Friday and can be supported financially via PayPal here -
