A must-have for contemporary art fans, this pocket-sized monograph on Roger Hiorn's work Untitled, comes with a full-colour, fold-out poster. With beautiful photography throughout, and including a fascinating text by Tom Morton, this book sheds new light on the practice of one of contemporary art’s most thoughtful and innovative figures.

Our Price:  £9.99

Turner Prize nominee Roger Hiorns is perhaps best known for his sculptures made using copper sulphate solution. For Seizure (2008), he flooded a condemned council flat in South London with this material, turning it into a glittering blue cave for visitors to explore, and his 2004 work Nunhead coats a car engine in the jewel-like chemical crystals, representing the 'crystallisation and transformation of an abstract idea of power'.

In Untitled (2010) - originally commissioned by the Art Institute of Chicago - Hiorns explores his interest in automation and industrial forms further. The work consists of two decommissioned aircraft engines. Once part of military surveillance planes which have been altered through the insertion of three pharmaceuticals in crushed form - Effexor, Citalopram and Mannitol. The work references the creation and alleviation of anxiety on both a national and personal level, addressing the connection between global security and individual well-being.

Roger Hiorns: Untitled includes extensive visual documentation of this work as it was installed in Chicago and Edinburgh, as well as an authoritative and poetic critical text by Tom Morton. With beautiful photography throughout and additional reference material, this book sheds new light on the practice of one of contemporary art's most thoughtful and innovative figures.
