    About The Work

    Limited edition artist's book by Laurel Nakadate to coincide with her first UK solo exhibition. The book includes an essay by acclaimed author Rick Moody and features the impressive photographic series 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears (2010), for which the artist photographed herself crying every day for a year in order to "deliberately take part in sadness each day".

    Working in film, performance and photography, Nakadate often puts herself – her body and personal relationships – at the centre of the nexus of author, artwork and audience. She creates highly charged scenes that put in play relationships premised on gender, power and sexuality. Using a finely tuned emotional tone, Nakadate's work demonstrates an unusual level of humanity, as she foregrounds vulnerability, emotion and sensitivity with a striking level of candour. Issues of identity, social class and mental health are central to her practice. Several recent works have focused on teenagers as cyphers for universal human struggles, and as lynchpins for understanding the highs and lows of popular culture.

    Edition of 2000, design by Malcolm Southward.
