Additional Information

Lubaina Himid’s Men in Drawers series used drawers from an installation by fellow artist Susan Walsh. Exploring the nature of lost and found items and people, Himid says that ‘Men in Drawers are meant to be displayed so that they come as a surprise.’ She writes ‘I imagine these men getting dressed, in carefully chosen shirts and ties, socks and sweaters. The everyday process of being who you are. Drawers are the epitome of the chance encounter.’
