Chanel No. 82
Chanel No. 82, 2010 Rachel Harrison
For this limited edition artwork - produced especially for The Whitechapel Gallery - Harrison collapses several portraits into a single image. Through her practice of painting photographs, Harrison takes a medium designed in many ways for multiplicity and converts it into a unique work. With the edition this process is reversed, but also acknowledged through the matching of both the reproduced paint and photograph with the colour bar.
Edition of 60 works, signed and numbered verso.
As is traditional in editions publishing, prices will rise as an edition starts to sell out.
