There’s a new sex shop in Dalston

Dalston’s got a new sex shop. Before you get too excited, allow us to clarify.

Sadly, you won’t be able to pick up a dildo or a leather onesie at this particular ‘Sex Shop’, which is in fact a new exhibition at Transition Gallery. The project is curated by Sarah Gillham, Jack Stokoe and Darren Nairn, three London-based artists who asked 50 designers, artists, and creative folks to craft a prototype of their own sex or fetish object. The show opens tomorrow and is positively (b)rimming with naughty sex-related artworks

Here’s a sneaky peep show of what to expect (it’s perhaps a little less smutty than you’d imagine):

‘Sex Shop’ is at Transition Gallery, Unit 25A Regent Studios, 8 Andrews Road, E8 4QN until March 29.
