The group who make up and host the young people’s forum based in South London Gallery weekly, have made a shampoo and conditioner inspired by the smells of Peckham named ‘Liquid Rye’ which will be used and sold in DKUK art space and hair dressers.
Art Assassins will also transform the salon into a promotional space for their product.
The group of 18 to 21 year-olds often run projects through an investigation of how it feels to be a young person living in south London have made collaborative works such as cassette tape, ‘WE ARE US AND YOU ARE YOU’ and the time when they gathered in a forest to broadcast throughout the night.
DKUK’s recent shows have included work by late artist Ian Breakwell, Holly Slingsby, a single hair dancing in disco lights installed by Jack Strange and an Xmas Bleach Party. Run by artist Daniel Kelly, the Peckham salon also participated in this year’s Manifesta in Zurich.
