In his practice Fallon explores the diverse landscape of queer culture through the use and manipulation of objects and materials. The binary of private versus public marks a particular point of interest; examining the ways in which spaces are utilised and fetishized in order to explore the sentimental values of love, desire and loss, occurrences that are at once unfolding in the public realm, whilst at the same time remaining an enigmatically private affair. At a first glance, the sculptural works seem reminiscent of things and places encountered before, but there is a false façade at play and quickly, the reality of each work begins to unfold and theatrically perform. It is these theatrical and performative elements, inspired heavily by Jean Genets literature and film, which change the work from something static to something with movement, weight and dependency. Broken walls being laced up; others are unzipping to reveal a little more than they bargained for whilst hydrants become functionless and sculptures grow socks, crawling for the exit. Here, the mundane and previously encountered have been revalued and exalted and their previous function as markers of space, defining our boundaries, is something of the distant past and instead look towards the future. Fallon’s aim here is to litter an envisioned landscape with coded and sculptural objects, monuments of queerness which typically act and communicate under the guise of secrecy. In this new landscape, they would no longer be hindered by discretion but instead, bombastically exist to scream loud of the presence, intention, and purpose.
