About of artwork
Prem Sahib's sculptures and installations are suggestive of human touch or bodily presence. Centrally, his practice is informed by the architectures and atmospheres of meeting places, particularly those used and accessed by gay communities: clubs, saunas, or cruising spots that create or facilitate proximity. In Cuts, 2016 Sahib turns indecent or unseemly remainders - urine filled bottles left by backdoors to bars or behind alleyway bins - into design objects, remodelled as flower vases. As always with Sahib's work, the simplicity of means and gesture issue multiple, contrasting associations.
