BY THE GOOD ROOM
Dirty Laundry is a large-scale cotton-based installation of anonymous sexual confessions, fantasies and desires hoisted and hung for public witness. Inspired by enforced social distancing (on the streets and in the sheets), this cheeky work is a record of the way 2020 has altered our romantic relationships and changed the way we quench desire in a positive celebration of sex, intimacy and holding out for love in lockdown.
Dirty Laundry is drawn from a slate of submissions submitted to a bespoke website over a specially-created digital event called the Dirty Weekend. The installation will be studded with readings from the full hamper basket and is designed to be enjoyed across a 20 minute visit.
