About this title

Synopsis:

Documenting the unprecedented joint exhibition of the Turner-nominated British artists, this richly illustrated publication explores the many common themes found in each practice. Both artists willfully interrogate and refashion standards from the art world's multiple histories. Seen together Brown's paintings and Warren's sculptures acquire new references and new appropriations. The Brown canvases are a nightmarish review of art history that revises and reframes the work of masters and sci-fi illustrators alike. Included is his first diptych, They Threw Us All in a Pit and Built a Monument On Top, which debuted at the 2003 Venice Biennale, and also his massive The Ever Popular Dead, which debuted at Brown's Turner Prize show in 2000. Produced between 1997 and 2005, these works represent Brown's broad scope as much as his singular Mannerist vision. The Warren works are equally disruptive. Her sculptures are mangled and tumescent, responding to the manicured forms of classical statuary by making obvious the kneading and manipulation that calls form into being. Offsetting the clay work is Warren's monolithic Cube, a five-foot block of rough-hewn bronze that may remind us of the origins and inscrutable promise of core materials. These works constitute a distinct series originally displayed at the 2006 Tate Triennial.
