In Dreams You’re Mine explores intimacy, loneliness and sexuality in a domestic context. The works speak to the presence and absence of the body and the abject in a digital image-based culture, and to the warm anxiety that this tension may incite. The exhibition confronts the physicality of sexual fulfilment through the uneasy disjunction between visual sexuality and the radical vulnerability of bodily intimacy. By highlighting the problematic overlapping of empathetically reciprocal and violently narcissistic sexual expression, In Dreams You’re Mine hopes to provoke reflection on how loneliness and desire manifest in private and public. In Dreams You’re Mine is the third in a series of annual projects at The Walls that brings together the divergent practices of two artists in a collaborative installation.
