Mary Anne Francis: High Art Light

Quick overview:

Edition of 35

High Art Light forms part of Part Art, a range of works that Mary Anne Francis launched in 2002 that take modular form, allowing owners to reassemble constituent elements to their own design. Part Art works also realise their title in being only partly ‘art’; variously, items in the range have second lives, for example, as a source of cleaning supplies, as foyer decoration, and as lighting – High Art Light.

About the Edition

High Art Light forms part of Part Art, a range of works that Mary Anne Francis launched in 2002 that take modular form, allowing owners to reassemble constituent elements to their own design. Part Art works also realise their title in being only partly ‘art’; variously, items in the range have second lives, for example, as a source of cleaning supplies, as foyer decoration, and as lighting – High Art Light.

Incorporating ‘high’ and ‘low’ functions in this way makes these works another instance of what critic Julian Stallabrass calls High Art Lite. High Art Light is thus both an embodiment of High Art Lite and also its parody.
