Lucy Clout presents a new body of work titled Solvent Magazine, including sculptural and video pieces made during her six-month residency with Berwick Visual Arts and BFMAF. An assemblage of parts that brings together research around close readings of bodies— diagnostic narratives, pleasure and ambiguity are used as ways to think about knowledge, evidence and queer reproduction.
Part-waiting room, part-publishing house, Solvent Magazine presents: a £23.00 USB microscope camera, the story of a temp’s discretion, a new design for privacy screen glass which mimics the saliva of a person with secure attachment style, two piss coloured Perspex doors and a layer of plastic to keep out distractions.

Lucy Clout presents a new body of work titled ‘Solvent Magazine’ which includes sculptural and video pieces made during her six-month residency with BFMAF and Berwick Visual Arts. A new film of the same title brings together research about the close readings of bodies. The work uses pleasure and ambiguity as tools to think about the contemporary production of knowledge, evidence and reproduction.
