About the Edition
Perhaps her best-known body of work, the 'Five Revolutionary Seconds' series, uses a panoramic camera to take a full 360 degree image of an interior during a five second exposure. The works are populated by numerous figures, each of which appear to exist in their own time and space, expressing a range of charged states from melancholy to decadence, to violence and alienation. 'Ivan' is a portrait of Ivan Putrov the principal dancer of the Royal Ballet. Here he is captured in flight in graceful yet taut repose. Seeming to be supsended, he hovers above the body of a beautiful waster.
About the Artist
Sam Taylor-Wood combines elements of still and moving images, frequently exploring the tensions and entanglements arising between people in a closed environment. Often emotionally and spatially disorientating, her highly choreographed scenes bring together a cast of everyday people, close friends, models, and actors. Through highly charged scenarios, her artworks examine our shared social and psychological conditions, and the split between being and appearance.
