Best Viewed Without Underwear asks viewers, if they desire, to remove their underwear and allow it to be part of the exhibition. “Best Viewed” is a reference to 90’s banner graphics which would declare the proper browser and screen size to optimally display a website. Whether the visitor decides to take off their underwear or not, they are forced to think about their bodily presence in the space and are therefore best equipped to view the other works on view. As installed as part of Speculative Fetish at Transfer Gallery, the piece contains further instructions to find a bathroom in the back of the space, where they would find an additional work in the show, Wire Bath.
