Cubicle Your Fears

in the toilets at LCB

Cubicle Your Fears is a collection of extracts, in a graffiti style, from Richard DeDomenici’s Shed Your Fears installation which appeared at Tate Modern in 2017. The exhibit took the form of a wooden shed comprising to cubicles, within which participants could sit and anonymously, safely, and privately share their fears, hopes and dreams with a stranger. Shed Your Fears was designed to enable participants to express their honest feelings, without shame or recrimination, and led to some unexpectedly powerful results.

Engaged: Behind Closed Doors at Liberty UK Festival
By installing texts on a series of locks at The Exchange, LCB Depot and Manhattan 34, Yara El-Sherbini and The Khazi Collective seek to trigger conversations around the complexities of identity for Liberty UK Festival while bringing artworks to unusual locations like toilets.

With Leicester being the first of five European cities to showcase temporary art installations by international artists in toilets of local cafés or cultural venues in the city centre, the Accessible Art for All project wants to share messages about how we can live in a fairer and more inclusive society.

AAA. Accessible Art for All is a European initiative led by Explora (Rome) in partnership with ArtReach’s Liberty UK Festival (Leicester), Altonale (Hamburg), Muzeiko (Sofia) and Regional Museum of Skåne (Kristianstad).
