GILLIAN WEARING - FAMILY STORIES AT SMK

Gillian Wearing is interested in real life. In her art she gives perfectly ordinary people a voice, examining and documenting the relationships between them. From October 13th, SMK presents an exhibition featuring the Turner Prize-winning artist.

Throughout her career, British artist Gillian Wearing (b. 1963) has been keenly interested in people and in human relationships. In her works she gives perfectly ordinary people a voice – documenting private narratives, examining family constructs and exploring the boundaries between the private and the public.

She often incorporates herself or members of her family directly in her art, raising questions about how relationships with other people help shape our identity.

The exhibition shows a range of Wearing's works of art created from 1992 to the present day. They mainly consist of photographs and video pieces in which she uses image formats that are commonly seen in everyday life: family photographs, snapshots, TV shows and home videos.

"I just look for situations where there is an element of truth. People can't relate to a made-up fantasy of what a family is; they might aspire to it for themselves. But if they are to view someone else's situation then they want something that is honest," says Gillian Wearing.

Nuori - Tinted Lip Treats

Nuori's founder, Jasmin Bonnén currently splits her time between Copenhagen and New York. So it was only natural that the first two tinted versions of Nuori Lip Treat were inspired by these two very different cities. 
The tinted lip treat is a great alternative to traditional lipsticks.
