April is the cruellest month - Michael Rakowitz Limited Edition

  • £1,400.00

Michael Rakowitz’ new sculpture ‘April is the Cruellest Month’ was unveiled on the seafront in Margate on 29 April 2021. Presented by Turner Contemporary, Rakowitz’ new commission marks the launch of ‘England’s Creative Coast’, comprising seven outdoor art commissions. The new commissions form the series Waterfronts, made in response to the Essex, Kent and East Sussex coastlines.

 Sketched is a new way to understand an artist’s work; a chance to explore their notebooks, sketchbooks and even i-Pads to discover their motivation, process and inspiration. The Iraqi-US artist Michael Rakowitz, who achieved widespread acclaim for his Fourth Plinth statue in Trafalgar Square, started sketching ideas for a new commission from Turner Contemporary and England’s Creative Coast, when he was in the UK for a major retrospective of his work at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2019. These ‘April is the Cruellest Month’ limited-edition prints chart the work’s inception and provide a unique insight into the Rakowitz’ creative process. Indeed, how can we ever truly separate an artist’s process from the “final product”?
