Pascale Marthine Tayou: Lover


On the occasion of his exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Pascale Marthine Tayou has created a new neon Limited Edition. The word ‘lover’ is inscribed in cursive script, combining an intimate and suggestive greeting with the cool light of neon, a medium more closely associated with advertising than personal expression.

Humour and warmth is never far from Tayou’s sculptural practice, which encompasses a wide variety of natural, handcrafted and mass-produced materials. His frequent use of neon translates the fluidity of a drawing or handwritten passage into an industrially-produced object, bringing with it multiple readings and associations.
