Please join us on Thursday 5 March when Patrick Staff will be in conversation with Catherine Wood, Curator, Contemporary Art & Performance, Tate. For more information and to reserve a place please click here. 

To accompany his exhibition, The Foundation, at Chisenhale Gallery, Patrick Staff has produced a new limited edition artwork titled It's Soaking (2015). The edition is a C-type photograph – a production still taken by Staff – mounted on rubber-backed felt underlay. For the artist, these specific materials evoke the Tom of Finland Foundation – home to the archive of the erotic artist and gay icon and a community of people that care for it  – as a physical, architectural environment with both domestic and archival functions, and its complex, shifting state as a political, communal and libidinal space. For more information and to purchase visit our online shop. 

Staff is in residence on Chisenhale Gallery's Instagram feed where he will be posting images throughout the run of his exhibition until April 2015. To follow our Instagram feed please click here.
