Catalogue Note

Richard Wentworth is one of the UK’s most influential artists, working primarily with sculpture and photography. He has played a leading role in New British Sculpture since the 1970s and his work has been widely exhibited internationally with major solo exhibitions.

“Zadie Smith, a Londoner, writes about what I see. I reversed the dust jacket on my copy of White Teeth, now a plain wrapper. I have trussed and mirrored it.”
