About The Work

Humour and warmth is never far from Pascale Marthine Tayou’s sculptural practice, which encompasses a wide variety of natural, handcrafted, and mass-produced materials. His frequent use of neon translates the fluidity of a drawing or handwritten passage into an industrially-produced object, bringing with it multiple readings and associations. For this work, created on the occasion of his exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, the word “lover” is inscribed in cursive script, combining an intimate and suggestive greeting with the cool light of neon, a medium more closely associated with advertising than personal expression.
