Drum circle by Graham Dolphin

Drum circle by Graham Dolphin

"Graham Dolphin's work appropriates objects and icons of the fashion and music industries, reforming them into assemblages that reveal the obsessions and formulas underwriting the temporal world of mass culture. Text works include: every lyric from the Beatles back catalogue hand written over the iconic cover of the White Album. In another text work, Dolphin takes every word from a single issue of Vogue and scripts them onto a single page, which has the same dimensions of the magazine. Dolphin's drawings compile every 'product' (shoes, cosmetics, etc.) traced over each other onto a single page. Film works include: gathering 1,500 images of Kate Moss merged into 60 seconds and footage of 100 Fashion Shows shown in a mere 100 seconds. These compulsive actions transform and disrupt the surface aspirations of popular culture and the glamour industry." Seventeen gallery
