Other details: Two naked bearded men and an open fire, is the title of a conference paper I delivered at Transmission: Hospitality in July 2010 at Sheffield Hallam University. This paper addressed the representation of friendship in a scene from Ken Russell’s 1969 film Women in Love, starring Oliver Reed, Alan Bates. As artist in residence at YSP in the summer of 2008 I was reliably and enthusiastically informed that the famous ‘wrestling’ scene was filmed on this site. The scenes location was wrongly attributed for over forty years. Reception of the scene’s lack of provenance was met by disbelief and much disappointment. The paper will be published online in January 2011 along with other papers from the international conference.
