Sharon Hayes

16 May 200917 May 2009

For Talk Show, artist Sharon Hayes continues her recent work exploring the relationship between political desire and personal or romantic desire. Hayes will present a short series of performances on the streets of London. Speaking to an anonymous lover on a street corner, Hayes' work inserts private correspondence into a scene of public speech. In these works, she is interested in provoking questions about the territory of the 'unspeakable' as it relates to the boundaries of 'acceptable' love, but also as it relates to politics, and the notion of free speech.

On Saturday 16 May at 2pm, Sharon Hayes will be at the statue of Emmeline Pankhurst in Victoria Tower Gardens, Millbank, SW1P.

On Sunday 17 May at 2pm Sharon Hayes will be at the north-west corner of Trafalgar Square, WC2N.
