CHART gallery is pleased to be hosting an exhibition of limited edition artworks commissioned by The Multiple Store, and created by leading artists including Turner Prize nominees Fiona Banner, Langlands & Bell, Cornelia Parker, David Shrigley and Alison Wilding.

This exhibition is an opportunity to buy and own affordable and beautifully produced works by major artists, in small editions, whose value will increase over time.

These appealing and accessible artworks are on a scale small enough for any interior setting, yet are also to be found in the collections of major institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum and The British Museum.

For some artists, the opportunity to work with The Multiple Store means the freedom to produce work not normally associated with their practice, for others it is very much part of ongoing explorations in their work.

Works on show will include David Shrigley’s “Brass Tooth”. Shrigley was shortlisted for the 2013 Turner Prize, and in 2014 it was announced that he would be one of the next commissioned artists for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, which will feature his bronze sculpture “Really Good”.

For her second edition for The Multiple Store (“Meteorite Lands…in the Middle of Nowhere”) Cornelia Parker  made a new series of meteorite “landings”. These consist of “hits and misses” made by heating a 400 year old iron meteorite until glowing hot and then using it to burn mythic locations on maps of the American South.

In Fiona Banner’s hands, full stops become abstract sculptures, each containing their own highly individual characteristics. “Table Stops” is a collection of seven ceramic full stops, each taken from a different font. The full stops are all enlarged to the same scale, though each is a very different size and shape. These smaller realisations relate to Banner’s earlier exhibition of huge polystyrene punctuation marks at Tate Britain.

Alison Wilding recently had a solo display of her sculptures in the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain. Her acclaimed edition for The Multiple Store, “Rising”, found its inspiration in drawings of the first nuclear pile in the USA, but evolved into an object that echoes the stepped, pyramidic structures of ancient civilisations.

The Multiple Store was started in 1998 by founders Nicholas Sharp and Sally Townsend, whose aims were to commission limited editions of new sculptural work and other work in 3D by some of the best contemporary British artists, to encourage a culture of collecting by selling the work at inexpensive prices, and to provide opportunities for artists to explore new materials and processes.

Exhibiting artists include: Ackroyd & Harvey, Karen Ay, Fiona Banner, David Burrows, Jonathan Callan, Keith Coventry, Tom Dale, Dalziel & Scullion, Grenville Davey, Sarah Dobai, Graham Fagen, Rose Finn-Kelcey, Mary Anne Francis, Anya Gallaccio, Graham Gussin, Sigune Hamann, Dan Hays, Kenny Hunter, Langlands & Bell, Liliane Lijn, Peter Liversidge, Cornelia Parker, Simon Periton, David Shrigley, Sarah Staton and Alison Wilding.

“The range of quality and inventiveness of its projects is phenomenal”  (Tim Marlow, Director of Exhibitions, Royal Academy, London)
