For Sex Shop, curators Sarah Gillham, Jack Stokoe and Darren Nairn invited 50 artists, designers and creative people to develop a prototype version of their own sex or fetish object. Playfully engaging with issues surrounding sex and desire the responses span a wide range of different media, from 3D maquettes, to 2D visualisation, time-based pieces, and references to panoply of sexual practices, fetishes and merchandise. They are by turns personal, provocative and usable.

Sex Shop’s first incarnation, in the south coast resort of Folkestone, played on ideas of the seaside town as a place of secret liaisons and dirty weekends, conducted against a scenic, yet simultaneously shabby and dilapidated backdrop. The ‘sex shop’ is of course a seaside staple, often selling genuine sex aids flanked by an assortment of humorous trinkets and throwaway paraphernalia. Sex Shop now tours to the very different surroundings of design conscious Hackney, a place where pleasure seeking is taken very seriously.
