Naturally Forming Glory Hole
Shown: Arts Factory Gallery - Paris
After Being invited to exhibit within the Paris Ass Book Fair, Jo Kimber an I decided to make a book exploring queer history within the urban setting. Our deliberation resulted in us making a book describing how a glory hole naturally forms within a public rest room.
This artist book examines the materiality, physiological and emotional aspects of a naturally forming glory hole within a Bristol based toilet cubical from 1960 for a period of roughly 10 years.
Jo Kimber has expertly crafted words to accompany each page. Describing the scene within each page scenario, we follow one character through his discovery of each hole and its different practical and emotional uses.
Made from plywood, formica, duct tape and vintage toilet paper. Limited edition of 8.
