Alien Sex Capsule

Alien Sex Capsule


Preview night Friday 18th August, 6-8pm

The British artist 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’s guides the viewer through a carnival like space filled with painting, sculptural and video pieces converging 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 it 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.
