Yinka Shonibare MBE in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director of the Whitechapel Gallery at Multiplied Editions Fair

Yinka Shonibare MBE was In Conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director of the Whitechapel Gallery on Friday 17th October at Multiplied Art Fair, Christie’s South Kensington where the public launch of KALEIDOSCOPE, our latest edition has taken place.

A video of the talk is now available via this link.

About the Edition

Yinka ShonibareKALEIDOSCOPE by Yinka Shonibare MBE is a new limited edition of 45. Described by Yinka as ‘a piece that playfully explores gender stereotypes and power relations’, it is a kaleidoscope in the shape of a phallus, with the body beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns Yinka is known for, and the head made of highly polished brass. Through the opening at the head of the phallus a distorted image of Sandro Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ can be seen. Botticelli’s original image depicted the birth of Venus, the goddess of the sea, standing on a shell. Subverting this familiar image, Yinka has replaced the female nude by a photograph of a well-endowed male. Click here for more information on this edition.
