The British Museum. The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman

Client: The British Museum
Date: October 2011

Grayson Perry spent two years exploring the British Museum stores for exhibits which combined with his new works create a unique installation. Grayson takes you on a journey through his imagination.

Subtle changes from light to dark create a dramatic background to a disparate collection of exhibits that speak to each other with a voice at once witty, factual, poetic and sexual.

'This is a memorial to all the anonymous craftsmen that over the centuries have fashioned the manmade wonders of the world'.
Grayson Perry RA
