From the gallery:
The exhibition “Making Meaning” offers an overview of Grayson Perry’s work, exploring themes of Britishness, identity, craftsmanship and the art establishment. It includes some of his major works in ceramic, tapestry, sculpture and etching, as well as featuring vignettes from some of the artist’s recent museum shows. The exhibition has been curated by Erin Manns, Director of Exhibitions, Victoria Miro, London.

Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry is a vivid chronicler of contemporary life, boldly tackling subjects that are universally human, such as identity, gender, social status, sexuality and religion.

Autobiographical references — to the artist’s childhood, his family and his transvestite alter ego Claire — can be read in tandem with questions about décor and decorum, class and taste, and the status of the artist versus that of the artisan. Perry uses the seductive qualities of ceramics and other traditional art forms, including cast iron, bronze, printmaking and tapestry, to make stealthy comments about society, past and present, and its pleasures, as well as its injustices and flaws.
