Susan Hiller Limited Edition Print

Susan Hiller is an American born artist who has based her practice in London since the 1970’s. Her work encompasses a number of different media including, installation, photography, collage and video. In 2011, Tate Britain exhibited a retrospective of her work which showed the breadth of her body of work to great acclaim. In conjunction with the exhibition, Hiller produced a limited edition print based on her Dedicated to the Unknown Artists and Homage series of works. The print was produced in an edition of 100 and measures 33.7 x 48.5cm.

Rachel Whiteread – Ringmark 2010 Artists Edition

Rachel Whiteread produced this edition to coincide with her 2010 exhibition of drawings at Tate Britian. Whiteread is best known for her sculptures where she casts objects in concrete, thus documenting the negative space. However, central to her creative process are her works on paper. The collages and drawings presented in this exhibition provide an unrivalled insight into the creative process behind Whiteread’s work. While her sculptures are often large-scale and involve a team of fabricators, these paper works provide a more intimate personal, reference point to her process.

The edition was produced in collaboration with Counter Editions and depicts overlapping ringmarks as if left by numerous cups and glasses, reminiscent of a gathering having occurred. The edition is not your usual print, the ringmarks are laser cut from plywood, stained black and mounted on conservation board. The “print” is 61x53cm and comes in an edition of 400. I bought mine during the exhibition but it is still available from the Counter Editions website.
