Gillian Wearing and Claude Cahun : behind the mask, another mask by Sarah Howgate( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully illustrated book draws together for the first time the work of French artist and writer Claude Cahun (1894-1954) and British contemporary artist Gillian Wearing (b. 1963) Although they were born almost a century apart, their work shares similar themes - gender, identity, masquerade, and performance. In 2015, Sarah Howgate traveled with Wearing to the island of Jersey, in the English Channel, where Cahun lived and worked until her death, and where her archive is housed, In examining Cahun's photographs, Wearing was struck by the remarkable parallels with her own explorations of the self-image through photography. Cahun was a contemporary of André Breton and Man Ray, but her work was rarely exhibited during her lifetime. Wearing, who has exhibited extensively and is a recipient of Britain's prestigious Turner Prize, was no stranger to Cahun's work when she made the trip to Jersey -- her 2012 self-portrait, 'Me as Cahun holding a mask of my face', is a reconstruction of Cahun's iconic 'Self-portrait' made in 1927. In this book, Howgate examines the work of both artists, investigating how their cultural, historical, political, and personal contexts have affected their interpretations of similar themes."

14 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British artist Gillian Wearing explores the lives of ordinary people through her photographs and films, often masking her subjects and using staging techniques to challenge the public and private identities of her individuals. This monograph provides an overview of the artist's work from the early, iconic photographs of people holding up signs with written personal confessions or thoughts, titled 'Signs that Say What You Want Them to Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You to Say' (1992 - 93), to her latest video 'Bully' (2010) in which the roles of victims and perpetrators, actors and directors are blurred. 0Exhibition : Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK / K20 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, Germany / Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany

Self made by Gillian Wearing( Visual )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Self made is the debut documentary feature from Turner Prize winning artist Gillian Wearing, who placed an advert asking the public: 'Would you like to be in a film? You can play yourself or a fictional character. Call Gillian.' Of the hundreds of people who replied, seven appear in Self made, undertaking a Method acting workshop to delve into their own memories, fears and fantasies. Wearing makes the provocation that in a world where CCTV, reality television and 'fictionalised' documentary make us all into performers, reality and fiction are interchangeable commodities. Are we all playing a role, consciously or unconsciously?"--Container

Gillian Wearing : family stories by Gillian Wearing( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in Danish and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La famille comme miroir de la sociét馦¦Que signifie ""famille"" aujourd'hui? Quelles notions et quels préjugés ressortent-ils? Comment la vie de famille moderne est-elle façonnée ces jours-ci? Dans son projet A Real Danish Family, l'artiste britannique Gillian Wearing pose ces questions d'une manière à la fois artistique et stimulante. La sculpture éponyme représente une famille danoise sélectionnée parmi 492 familles participantes de la composition la plus diversifiée. L'exposition Family Stories, qui sera inaugurée lors de la présentation de la sculpture à la National Gallery of Denmark (SMK) de Copenhague et initiée et produite par le Kunsthal Arhus, s'articule autour de la famille comme point de cristallisation des relations interhumaines. Des photographies, des vidéos et des sculptures explorent la parenté et l'identité et incluent la famille de l'artiste comme exemple. Dans une série d '«autoportraits», l'artiste utilise des masques pour se glisser dans les rôles de ses frères et soeurs, de ses parents et de ses grands-parents. La publication examine le travail de Wearing et le thème de la famille à travers l'objectif de l'histoire de l'art, et retrace le cours de A Real Danish Family, un projet qui questionne avec audace les modèles de pensée dans la société."
