Darren Nairn : Wallflowers

Wallflowers is an installation of drawings made for the Artslav space, a previously abandoned male public toilet in Kennington, London. The installation consists of 83 drawings on wallpaper scattered in piles throughout the space as though discarded, with the intention of allowing the viewer to interact by being able to sort through them and re position them, personally selecting and discarding. The work aims to explore ideas of masculinity and specifically gay masculinity, through the appropriation of images of erect penises found on the gay ‘dating’ websites used as a means to connect, in the same way that public toilets were previously by gay men before the digital age.

Also open Sunday 3rd November by appointment.
