    The idea is very simple; film a very short clip of either curtains or blinds opening to reveal the view from a window, preferably without showing hands or arms. The relationship between the two women is vague: if they are not related, their position suggests that they must at least be close friends. Dancing in Peckham Dancing in Peckham is a minute video of the artist dancing in the middle of a Peckham shopping center, to music that only she could hear. Whilst some critics have suggested that Wearing is revealing her private self in a public place, others argue that she is attempting to become someone else. Then he got a bit angry, handed back the piece of paper, and stormed off. Time after time after time.

    Of taking this photograph, Wearing recalls "I literally had to chase him down the street. In other pieces, Wearing conceals her own image, for example in Homage to the woman with the bandaged face who I saw yesterday down Walworth Roadin which the artist's face is covered. Studying at Goldsmiths was a period of great discovery for Wearing, who notes: "I would walk around a lot of different studios The wanting, the hope, the terror and the final despair. But I didn't have the upbringing where I got to know [my father] that well.

    In other works from the series, not included in this exhibition, she poses as her sister, grandmother, and seventeen-year-old self. We only ask that the shot is static and is shot on a horizontal and you follow some simple instructions so all the clips are similar in specification. Other images like I could no longer play I could no longer play by instinct, with an open, possibly ripped dress and blurred knife, together with a slash of black paint covering some of the words could represent personal despair. Each of the five pictures, all hung on one wall, looks like a glossy enlargement of a photograph from a family album: they include old black-and-white yearbook-type pictures of the artist's mother and father; a professional head shot of her smiling uncle; a snapshot of her shirtless brother in his bedroom brushing his elbow-length hair; and a photo-booth picture of the artist herself at

The series was made against the backdrop of the economic decline in Britain in the early s, represented by such statements as 'Will Britain get through this recession? Courtesy Maureen Paley, London. Speaking to the Guardian inWearing gives the high point of her career to date as making "My breakthrough works, Signs That Say, when I approached people and they wrote thoughts down on a piece of paper", whilst her low point was struggling to achieve a likeness in her mask of documentary photographer, Diane Arbus, who was influential to Wearing's work, and of whom there are few source photographs.

How do we read an image where the person is pretending to be an alternate identity? London: Phaidon. I was interested to revisit them too, to find traces of George Eliot through the present day.
