Description British artist Gillian Wearing explores the public and private identities of ordinary people through her photographs and films. Fascinated by how people represent themselves in fly-on-the-wall documentaries, she explores ideas of personal identity by often masking her subjects and using theatre's staging techniques. Including the early, iconic photographs of Signs that Say What You Want Them to Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You to Say (1992-93), and her latest video Bully (2010), this publication accompanies a travelling survey of the artist's work beginning at Whitechapel Gallery, London. Over 90 full colour illustrations and never before published archival material are accompanied by new texts by the exhibition's three curators.
