    About The Work

    As an extension to the exhibition, In My Little Corner of the World, Anyone Would Love You, at Studio Voltaire, Hayes has produced a poster that will be fly–posted on sites across London throughout the duration of the exhibition, as well as being presented in the gallery and available as a limited edition artwork.

    Hayes has looked specifically at queer and feminist archives across the US and UK which document gay rights, and women’s liberation. Working with both the content of these archives and how they are disseminated, Hayes has restaged and re–presented material that ranges from the seemingly mundane or administrative, to more affective forms. This edition contains a tightly cropped image taken from the Gay Liberation Front’s 1971 manifesto. 

    The photograph’s orientation is intentionally altered, changing the way in which we are attentive to the image. The original photograph was taken by John Chesterton and is taken from the Hall-Carpenter Archives at the London School of Economics.
