Object of a Life, Anne Tallentire
Oscillating between depiction and description, Object of A Life addresses Georges Perec’s question: How are we to speak of common things? Making an inventory of things that come to hand in the course of daily life, playing with ideas of contradiction, categorisation, improbability and speculation, this book offers an articulation of the space produced between language and drawing.
Anne Tallentire is an artist who has continuously addressed the shifting geographies, demographics and working practices of the displaced. She was born in N. Ireland and has lived and worked in London since 1984. She is Professor in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
