Book Description

The book of the 2015 exhibition at the Pera Museum with essays by Suna, İnan & İpek Kıraç, Emma Dexter & Margaret Jack, Linsey Young and an interview with Grayson Perry by Jacky Klein.

The first exhibition in Turkey of the 2003 Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry, has been organised in collaboration with the British Council and curated by Linsey Young from the council’s Visual Arts Team. Comprising tapestries, ceramics and prints, the show aims to reflect Perry’s unrelenting fascination with issues of religion, class and identity.

Perry’s largest single body of work to date, The Vanity of Small Differences, composed of six tapestries from the British Council Collection, will also be exhibited. Each measuring two metres high by four metres wide, they were inspired by William Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress. In Perry’s tapestries, the central character Tim Rakewell goes on a journey from working class roots to nouveau riche celebrity.
