Becoming Unbecoming

Una
Una
It's 1977 and Una is twelve. Other kids are into Punk or Ska, but Una is learning to play 'Mull of Kintyre' on the guitar, and she thinks it's a really good song. Another song, chanted on the terraces by Leeds United fans, might not have made it on to Top of the Pops, but the boys all sing it on the walk home from school: One Yorkshire Ripper - There's only one Yorkshire Ripper - One Yorkshire Ri-pper... A serial murderer is at large in West Yorkshire and the police are struggling to solve the case. As this national news story unfolds around her, Una finds herself on the receiving end of a series of violent acts for which she feels she is to blame. Unbecoming explores gender violence, blame, shame and social responsibility. Through image and text Una asks what it means to grow up in a culture where male violence goes unpunished and unquestioned.
