An exhibition of photographs of human beings from many places in the world, taken over many years by David Grandorge, opened 29 September 2022.
The photographs in the exhibition are visual documents of gorgeous humans taking part in extraordinary projects initiated by Liliana Sanguino. The exhibition will take place in the basement of the Queen Adelaide, the most compelling (and safe) queer space in London. It is a space of controlled hedonism where people drink, dance and have extraordinary conversations. It is a church for many, including the author of the photographs.
The exhibition might not last for more than a night. The photographs might fall to the floor due to moisture created by humans dancing and then destroyed by their swiftly moving feet. A desire for the human(s) in the picture, or the photograph itself, might lead to another human to take it off the wall and bring it home. Theft is sometimes allowed.
Conversely, the photos might survive on the walls to which they are attached. In this case, the exhibition will continue for more than one day, but at most a week. If they survive this period, they will be returned to an archive of physical prints in which they will rest until they are required to enter the world again.
