This project is from around 2008 when I started approaching men in public places outside offices, pubs, cafes and gentlemen’s venues often in London’s square mile and then negotiating with them into a more private space – an alleyway, a car park, or back at their place or mine. Once there I asked them to remove items of clothes. A series of hand-printed, black and white images. It taught me a lot about my relationships with men and sexual dynamics between at least myself and men if not more universally. In particular I became aware of lack of societal protections for me as I transgressed norms of gender behaviour. The work was shown at KCL and KODE, Bergen and other venues and published in academic journals
