Albert goldman's martini pitcher stirrer, 2014

$389.00

Albert Goldman's Martini Pitcher Stirrer is an edition that stems from Richard Healy’s larger exploration of the work of the modernist architect Horace Gifford. His architecture serves Healy as a footprint and guide for a wider investigation into ideas around function, gay cruising and design. Inspired by the bold and confident choices by Gifford for his buildings on Fire Island, structures that include conversation pits, communal outdoor showers and make-out lofts, and that reflect a golden period in the history of Fire Island and the spirit of the pre-AIDS, post-Stonewall queer lifestyle, Healy produced a selection of hand-blown Martini pitchers for the exhibition Last Seen Entering the Biltmore at the South London Gallery in 2014.

EXHIBITION: LAST SEEN ENTERING THE BILTMORE 26 JUNE - 14 SEPTEMBER 2014 

Albert Goldman's Martini Pitcher Stirrer edition escorts the Martini pitchers and both function as fictional props in the stages that Gifford's architecture suggests, invoking a quote by Gifford’s contemporary Albert Goldman stating:  "Cruising along at sunset with a glass in one hand and a modest pitcher of Martini in the other, you find yourself far more socially acceptable than you ever realised."
