Prem Sahib, Outing, 2015
Laser print on black paper
42 x 29.7 cm - comes framed only
Edition of 85, signed and numbered
Prem Sahib is interested in exploring the relationship between public and personal spaces, often evoking a sense of intimate encounters that remain hidden from plain sight in public places.
Sahib’s ongoing series of tiled column works have a distinctly anthropomorphic presence, enhanced by their collective title, ‘Watch Queen’ (gay slang for those who prefer to watch rather than have sex, or who keep watch on behalf of others); the cold, repellent tiled surface stands for warm, soft flesh.
In this special limited edition for the ICA, Sahib’s 'Watch Queen' is photographed in the park, seemingly awaiting a chance encounter.
