We are in this! Get on down and see our sculpture featured in Part one of the exhibition!
Originally a highlight of the 2014 Folkestone Fringe, Sex Shop is swapping the salty sea air for the thrills and
spills of London’s East End, when it takes up residence in Transition Gallery at the end of February.
The curators invited 50 people – primarily artists and designers, but also practitioners from other disciplines – to create a prototype version of their own sex or fetish object. The responses they received span a wide range of different media: from 3D maquettes, to 2D visualizations, to audio-visual pieces, and reference a cornucopia of sexual practices, fetishes and merchandise. They are by turns personal, playful, provocative and usable.
From a 3D printed insect’s penis to a crucifixion butt plug, bondage tea towels to spray on condoms, homemade porn to homemade jam, Sex Shop has something to tickle every fancy – no matter how unusual.
All the pieces on display in Sex Shop will be for sale and the exhibition will coincide with a special sex themed edition of Garageland magazine.
Sex Shop has been conceived and curated by Sarah Gillham, Darren Narin and Jack Stokoe.
