Known Unknowns

Plinth

£95.00 GBP

Fine Bone China Bowl


About

‘Known Unknowns’ is a bowl made of white, glazed bone china and its simple form rhymes readily with London’s gentle topographies. ‘LONDON’, that six letter word, sits at the centre, a cipher which proposes the way that its inhabitants ingest, digest, and pass through the city as a whole, and through the boroughs named around the rim.

About the Bowl

For Plinth, Richard Wentworth has created a bone china bowl called 'Known Unknowns' whose simple form rhymes readily with London’s gentle topographies. ‘LONDON’, that six letter word, sits at the centre, a cipher which proposes the way that its inhabitants ingest, digest, and pass through the city as a whole, and through the boroughs named around the rim

About the Artist

Richard Wentworth is an artist working primarily with sculpture and photography. Since the late 1960s, his work has been concerned with the material, language and the ways that humans cope with their environment. Countering the trend towards gigantism in post-war British sculpture, his work has always found aesthetic merit in modest events and things.

Wentworth's repurposing of everyday objects continues the language game of the ready-made, begun by Duchamp, extending and inflecting it with a unique precision and material sensitivity.
