Francis Whorrall-Campbell’s THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT HAVE BEEN DOWNLOADED is a zine consisting of the first three instalments of a serialised novella-in-progress. Reprinted with a new addition, the zine presents the story so far, introducing us to the two protagonists – a trans influencer living in the year 2034, and a fictionalised version of Kurt Cobain in 1994 – as the pair travel in opposite directions across the USA, looking for the source the paranormal phenomena disrupting their lives.

While Kurt searches for the origin of his ‘dysphoria’ in a sinkhole in Barbados (codenamed the ‘metabolic rift’), Edie is trying to find a cure for ‘twink death’: a real and fatal disease afflicting the cis gays and transmasculine population. These parallel narratives are interwoven with short non-fiction essays which provide context and further explanation for the book’s themes. 

Copies of the zine are available to read in the exhibitionsun, waiting for flawless/ an ghrian, ag feitheamh le foirfe and it can be purchased for €5 at Box Office or on the Project Art Centre’s website

Francis Whorrall-Campbell (they/he) is a writer and artist from the UK. Working across text, sculpture, and digital formats, their work advances a trans poetics, probing the link between making an artwork and making a (gendered) self – or, how art and writing can be tools for transition. This practice is guided by research into materialist histories of becoming, including DIY transition, mutual aid, internet communities, and other conditions which promote or inhibit trans survival. His work could be described as spinning gold from straw: trying (sometimes successfully) to fulfil the creative promise of transformation.

Francis has presented projects at Modern Art Oxford (2024); Nottingham Contemporary (2023); Espacio de Arte Contemporáneo de Castellón (2023); National Sculpture Factory, Cork (2023); Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien (2022); Auto Italia, London (2022); VISUAL Carlow (2022); Wysing Arts Centre (2021); and CCA Derry~Londonderry (2021, 2022). From September – November 2024, he will be a Laureate of the Principal Residency Programme at La Becque, Switzerland.
