Chewed Nipples (Overall winner - Eden Arts Awards 2019)

4m of Chewed bubble gum hung on metal rails.

Reflecting the disposability and availability of casual sexual encounters as well as the fetishistic side of touch and sexual interaction. Openly questioning social constructions of physical connection, anonymity and sexualisation. Revealing elements of personal experience yet also refusing to give details, displaying a careless hanging up of experiences, hung out too dry. Reflecting used condoms tossed aside after use. Holding onto the anonymity of each encounter. A playful way to show a part of many homosexual’s sexual history that can be viewed as negative, problematic and confronting. Giving a slightly uncomfortable yet amusing twist on physical touch and sensual desire.
