‘Will Britain Get Through This Recession?’ 1992-3

'Help’ 1992-3

from Signs that Say What You Want Them To Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You To Say

Gillian Wearing OBE (born 1963)

Also on display at Tate Liverpool as part of This Is Sculpture, despite quite clearly being photographs. Someone sack the curator!

Clearly I am posting these because they say something I want to say rather than what the people photographed want to say. Obviously I am doing that to highlight this tension within the piece. Obviously.
