    About The Work

    This limited edition artwork, It's Soaking, from British artist Patrick Staff was created to accompany his 2015 exhibition “The Foundation,” at Chisenhale Gallery, which explores queer intergenerational relationships negotiated through historical materials—and footage shot at the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles. This C-print—a production still taken by Staff—is mounted on rubber-backed felt underlay. For the artist, these specific materials evoke the Tom of Finland Foundation as a physical, architectural environment with both domestic and archival functions, and its complex, shifting state as a political, communal and libidinal space. The title, It’s Soaking, plays on an ambiguity between noun and adjective to suggest a potential mutable state of the object and its affect.
