The Re-appropriation of Sensuality

is a long-term, collaborative project. The project seeks to re-formulate representations of desire and the politics of architecture, looking at the relationship between body knowledge, performance and the anatomy of space. Underpinning the work is the question: How do we imagine a space dedicated to the manifestation of queer female identified desire?

The Re-appropriation of Sensuality’ is that rare thing: a successful exhibition that relies heavily on written texts. Wandering through Haugh’s banners with their unsettling mix of attractive and repellent materials, the provocation to understand the systems that constrain us is both powerful and urgent.’ Gemma Tipton, FRIEZE exhibition review (March issue #177)
