Age of Icons | Preview
Grayson Perry

Ahead of the exhibition opening, we're excited to present a sneak preview of some of the wonderfully intricate Grayson Perry maps that will be on display this week.

Maps have always fascinated Perry, and this print is just one example of how a map can become a window into the soul. He is a master of linking text and image, combining humour with profound commentary. Some of these phrases have even turned out to be prophetic – such as ‘a flooded little third-world village’ captioned as free market economy (the print was made well before the 2008 bankruptcy of the Lehman brothers and the economic crisis that ensued).

"The basic formal design came from a German mappa mundi called the Ebstorf Map, which was destroyed in the Second World War. It showed Jesus as the body of the world. My daughter often accuses me of setting myself up as God, so I made the lakes and rivers into my body."
