t4ng3rin3_sh4dow and Moiselle will be in residence on peripheral form's Instagram from December 1st-December 31st as part of The Wrong Water presenting part of their Uisce Bitchez project.
One day they decided it would be funny to splurge on Fiji water. The shelves were lined with all different types of water. All these waters claim to be the best for you. They are infused with Canadian spring water, filtered through diamonds, flavoured with lavender. They claim to relax you, invigorate you, give you mental clarity, boost your metabolism, neutralise acid in your bloodstream, make you youthful forever!
Uisce Bitchez will put this to the test. Uisce [ish-ka] is Irish for water.
Voss Water, Fiji Water, they are almost status symbols rather than simply water, one of the most basic human needs. Late capitalism and consumerism have managed to turn water into this. Money buys health. Money buys wellness. We are seeing water reviews everywhere. With Uisce Bitchez, the artists parody internet culture's fascination with artesian water with ridiculous, over the top "reviews".
