‘Fragile Masculinity’, unknown artist, 2018 – The Lumsden Freehouse, Newmarket

A hole was punched in the wall of the men’s toilet at The Lumsden Freehouse around 18 months ago – but instead of plastering it over, it was framed and given the title ‘Fragile Masculinity’, by Artist Unknown.

The damage was turned into an artwork by Lucie Campbell, operations manager of The Lumsden and Save Ferris, who had no idea it would become so popular.
