"Signs that say what you want them to say..."

January 21, 2016

Gillian Wearing's project "Signs that say what you want them to say and not what someone else wants you to say..." (1992-3) made me laugh, especially as I'm someone who really likes the kind of projects she is critiquing!


Clockwise from top left these signs read: 

"Brian Jaz Nearly famous"

"In the beginning was the word which is probably where we started going wrong."

"Have been certified as mildly insane."

"Me and my brothers say bollocks"

"Cut off the head and the body will die."

"I thought about being a gigilo but I worried about the health risks."


Seen at the Leamington Pump Rooms Art Gallery & Museum.
