Dara Vandor’s Lingerie Draw/er

International Exhibit Launches at South Place Hotel

Published Feb 3, 2015 by admin

London January 2015: On Thursday 5 February, the chic South Place Hotel unveils International artist, Dara Vandor’s, latest exhibitionLingerie Draw/er. Guests, romantics and art lovers can get inspired for our decadent Valentine’s Weekend while sipping Champagne by corsets, camisoles, and culottes.


The talented Dara Vandor is an artist working with pen on canvas. The medium itself seems ordinary: it produces small, intimate gestures, being a tool most of us use often, for daily tasks. Yet when tens of thousands of tiny strokes are marshalled en masse, they begin to assume a life of their own. Dara’s Lingerie Draw/er depicts elegant lingerie, absent of the female form. Even when the wearer is subtracted from the picture, the remaining clothing stands in for her and her desires. A series of ambiguous portraits then emerge: fantasies both societal and personal are explored through the commodity.


From 6pm-10pm on Thursday 5 February 2015 in our exclusive private member’s society space, Le Chiffre, guests can view this sultry exhibition and enjoy our signature refreshments. These seductive surprises will ignite passions and whet the appetite just in time for theValentine’s Day Weekend.


South Place Hotel’s newest offer, the Lingerie Draw/er Package will heat up your Valentine for a decadent weekend of bustiers, bubbles and breakfast in bed. This sensuous overnight stay begins with a bottle of chilled Champagne, homemade sea-salt caramel truffles, and signed print of Dara’s sexy work waiting in our sleek studios and suites. Our plush king-size beds will be covered in rose petals and feature Josephine Home bedlinen, cashmere wrapped mattresses and a pillow menu where guests can purchase our ‘Bare Essentials’ intimacy kit from Koibito stocked with organic lubricant, condoms & tickling feather.
