Summary

Preview night Fri 18 Aug, 6-8pm

British artist John Walter will transform Artlink’s gallery space into a multimedia, multi-sensory and immersive show, exploring the relationship between visual culture and HIV today.

Alien Sex Capsule is formalised around the ‘cruise maze’ – a structure common to sex clubs and gay sauna. Using the maze as a directive mechanism, Walter guides the viewer through a carnival-like space filled with painting, sculptural and video pieces that bring together conversation and research on the complex subject of contemporary sexual health today.

Through this interactive process, Walter’s intention is that the visitor is fully immersed into a multi-sensory yet welcoming environment in which hospitality, fortune-telling and comedy are all used to introduce difficult issues to a wide audience and make the subject palatable and interesting with a bit of fun and light humour thrown in.

Alien Sex Capsule is a capsule version of Walter’s 2015 exhibition Alien Sex Club, which was previously exhibited at Ambika P3 in London and at Homotopia festival in Liverpool.

 

The exhibition is part of Square Peg, a diversity and disability arts programme funded by Hull 2017. It follows on from LGBT 50, a week-long celebration of LGBT+ culture across the arts, marking the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967 that decriminalised homosexual acts in private between two men in England and Wales.
