THE WORLD ISN’T WORKING, 2013
Pavement Gallery, 31 January – 15 March 2013
Pavement Gallery is pleased to present The World Isn’t Working by Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner. The street level location of Pavement Gallery will complement this billboard type work, evoking ideas of press and poster banners. The World Isn’t Working has been described as being a “direct reference to the brutal Saatchi & Saatchi advertising strategy” which was used as part of the Conservative Party campaign in 1979 that led to their election win with the slogan ‘Labour Isn’t Working’. This work demonstrates Titchner’s use of words to satirically echo those of political advertising and mass media campaigns.
