Grayson Perry: BIRTH
15 March to 14 April 2019

Launch Party – Thursday 14 March 2019, 17:00 to midnight

“1st Prize winner of the Sony World Photography Awards this ‘iconic and iconoclastic’ portrait of the artist Grayson Perry is presented as a dramatic lightbox reworking the tirelss motif of mother and child. Conceived and produced by renowned photographer Richard Ansett, it focuses on Perry’s alter ego, Claire, balancing the influence of centuries of art history with high-camp photographic parody. Ansett calls it “a vulgar appropriation for the 21st Century.””
