Highlights from our Multiplied new releases

October 14th, 2011 | Posted by David in An Unknown Soldier | Live Shows | Monday School

Mulitplied sees the completion of three bodies of work! We are very pleased with their diversity and their standard testifies to the hours of hard work we’ve spent getting our studio in order. Here are some highlights of these for your attention.

Austerity Measure

We knew the Credit Crunch was good, but we had no idea it would grace the pages of the Financial Times, be certified by a firm of accountants, and  accepted by the Royal Academy… It now has a sibling; our Austerity Measure. This silkscreen print on 2mm greyboard was then lasercut. It features our favourite mad economic phrases selected from a post-it note we kept next to Radio 4 over the last few months. Thank you Robert Peston.

An Unknown Soldier

An Unknown Soldier is the most accomplished work we’ve ever made. But not everyone can afford a three-part poem in a dazzling silkscreen printed birch-ply box (£2,225). For this reason there also exist two large format prints based on call-posters featuring the same bespoke font we made for the project. The block letters are topped with patterns redolent of patterns found in security envelopes, and they are made using old-fashioned paper sizes. Royal Poster (Left Aligned) reads, ‘Thee must hebeas un corpus fur tet corps un see’, roughly translated, ‘you must have a body for this body of men’. Imperial Poster (fully justified) reads ‘Let nuh great unborn pre-empt nuh dead’.

Monday School

This commission for the Church where I attended Sunday School draws upon stained glass and the tradition of charting the Bible to celebrate the quatercentenary of the King James Bible. It comes as four panels in a debossed deluxe portfolio we made for it.

Following our King James Bible Bash show in the London Word Festival earlier this year, we then began a series of wonderful prints, one for each day of the creation story by French artist Margaux Carpentier. She has departed from the relatively recent division of the sacred and profane; in her creation series God extends his own organs to create matter infused with breath, recapturing the visceral message of the Bible text.
