Gillian Wearing: Mass Observation

 

Gillian Wearing has emerged as one of the foremost British artists of her generation, creating video installations and photographic works that explore the strange humor and wrenching tragedy of everyday life. Wearing's work often uses the techniques of documentary films and television to frame the words and actions of people. This full-color monograph represents the most eagerly anticipated, up-to-date, and incisive survey yet published of Wearing's work, and covers the period 1992 to 2002. Essays by Dominic Molon and Barry Schwabsky. The exhibition 'Gillian Wearing: Mass Observation' was presented at the MCA October 19, 2002 - January 19, 2003.
