Leachim Nadiresh “Public House of Cards”

Leachim Nadiresh
“Public House of Cards”
February 2009

Leachim’s artwork focuses on public houses and their role
and function within British society, often charting the
decline of this role.
These installations utilize a collection of European beer
mats and other bar paraphernalia from the 1970’s and 1980’s, drawing on nostalgia for a time before alcohol came to represent aspiration and sophistication and was instead seen as a simple enhancement to everyday life.
Each of these displays serve as a very obvious metaphor for
the fragile nature of the public house in today’s fragile economic and physical environment.
