10% of April sale proceeds go to Camden Food Bank, Trussell Trust
12cm tall, 7cm diameter
Produced exclusively for the Zabludowicz Collection, to coincide with Laurel Nakadate first Uk solo exhibition (29 September - 11 December 2011). She creates highly charged scenes that put in play relationships premised on gender, power and sexuality. Using a finely tuned emotional tone, Nakadate's work demonstrates an unusual level of humanity, as she foregrounds vulnerability, emotion and sensitivity with a striking level of candour. Issues of identity, social class and mental health are central to her practice. This edition in particular connects the photographic series 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears (2010), for which the artist photographed herself crying every day for a year in order to 'deliberately take part in sadness each day'.
Sold as a set of 6 or individually.
All proceeds from our editions are split equally between the artist and the Zabludowicz Collection Interaction Program
