Richard Ansett: BIRTH a portrait of Grayson Perry
Friday 25th – Wednesday 30th January 11am – 4pm daily FREE

“Artist Grayson Perry will unveil an ‘iconic and iconoclastic’ portrait of himself at the
Fitzrovia Chapel in January. Presented as a dramatic lightbox illuminating the secular,
baroque chapel from its ‘impious’ placement on the altar, the portrait reworks the
motif of mother and child. Conceived by renowned photographer Richard Ansett, it
focuses on Perry’s alter ego, Claire. It balances the influence of centuries of art history
with high- camp photographic parody, a vulgar appropriation for the 21st Century.”
