Happy new year! It is going to be a busy one for me, preparing for a new book and solo show in early Autumn. First though, I am taking part in The Courtauld Institute of Art's East Wing X: Material Matters show. This opens from the 21th January at the Institute in Somerset House in London - but being a working college it is only open to the public on the last Saturday of each month. If you want to catch the show though, it runs until June 2013, which should give you plenty of opportunity. I have a mix of older and newer work in the show, including the image above, taken near Somerset house at the end of last year. You can also see work by War Boutique, Laura Keeble, Gabriel Dawe, Paula Rego, Damien Hirst, Simon Edmonson and over 30 other artists. My work is downstairs in the cafe, so if you get there early you can probably grab a fry-up too. Find more info here.
I have also produced a book cover for Dimitri Verhulst's book The Misfortunates. It is the first commissioned book cover that I have done and the book is great - it reads like a Belgian version of Shameless, but with more heart. The installation wasn't left on the street like I usually would as I had to shoot a few versions of the cover, but fear not - I am in Antwerp in May, where these little alcoholics will be abandoned to their fates in their homeland. You can check out the book here.
