Alien Sex Club is a major multimedia project by British artist John Walter, which explores the relationship between visual culture and HIV today. Alien Sex Club uses the spatial device of the cruise maze to bring together works that address the complex subject of contemporary sexual health.
The exhibition comprises sculpture, painting, video, performance and installation. Visitors are immersed in an extrasensory world where they can get lost in the maze and have a drink in the bar. ASC uses popular forms including hospitality, fortune-telling, comedy and the aesthetic of carnivals and festivals to introduce issues to a wide audience and make the subject palatable, interesting and fun while grounding it in cross-disciplinary research.
The project is grounded in a collaboration with Dr Alison Rodger, University College London.
