About the Edition
Published to coincide with Taylor-Woods major solo show 'Yes I No' at White Cube, London, 2008, the artist and Counter Editions have produced a print specially selected from the After Dark series of photographs that appear in the show. In After Dark (With Lights) an undressed clown, by himself at a desk for two, is applying make up in an old warehouse. Rays of light pour through onto the clown from the windows above, catching the dust of the abandoned building. The potential comedy of any upcoming performance here is cancelled out by both the melancholy of the clown himself as well as the dereliction of his surroundings.
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.
