Idle Hours Club

Clinton Hayden


 

In 'Idle Hours Club' Artist Clinton Hayden uses digital images sourced from internet dating apps and re-interprets them through the Polaroid Medium, romanticising the base pornographic nature of contemporary modern romantic communication.

 

Hayden's studio-based multidisciplinary practice uses photography, objects and installation methods to investigate ideas of desire, intimacy and longing Through the careful, poctic combination of photography and artist-made objects, Hayden works with the understanding of the photograph both as image and object - A duality Susan Sontag once described as 'a pseudo presence and token of absence". Knowing that these states are tied to notions of melancholy and mortality, Hayden builds immersive and haptic sites for the exploration of love and longing, subject and object, lover and other.
