Grayson Perry: The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever!
Grayson Perry is one of Britain’s most celebrated artists. The Turner Prize winner is known for his sculpture, ceramics, tapestries and quilt-work, as well as his feminine alter-ego Claire.
His practice has long been concerned with what you might call the fabric of society. His current preoccupation with the way we consume art and the ways in which contemporary art can best address a diverse cross section of society is at the heart of his mantra.
And there is no escaping it in his newest body of work, opening at the Serpentine Galleries on election day.
With a desire to challenge “the same old comfortable ideas” which, in Perry's view, dominates British society and culture, we pick the works which are now more pertinent than ever.
Matching Pair is the most-talked about piece in the whole exhibition. The two vases represent the opposing sides of the most fractious political debate in the last few years: Brexit.
Decorated with images supplied by the British public - Perry invited a group of Bremainers and Brexiteers to send him visuals via social media that they believed represented British identity in the wake of the EU Referendum - one pot represents Remain and one pot represents Leave.
Can you spot which one is which?
Clue: Look out for a floating Farage head and the NHS and John Lewis Logo. They should get you on your way...
