Artist Gillian Wearing uses photography and video to produce a portrait of the complexities of contemporary life. This book takes a look at all of her work, contextualizing it in relation to 20th-century painting, photography and video art. The text discusses with the artist her collaborative approach towards her work and its subjects, and focuses on 10-16, a video installation that charts our transition from childhood to adolescence. The full transcripts of Wearing's videos are included.
