About the Work

I thought of making this sculpture when I was walking down Oxford Street. I went into the nearest BHS store, bought two white vinyl suitcases and wrote 'I brought this in case' on one. I then photographed it and made up a silkscreen incorporating the photograph and underneath printed 'A Case for Wittgenstein by Vaughan Grylls' in typeface reminiscent of that used on cheap newsprint in newsstands. I then bought some cheap newsprint and screened this announcement on several sheets of the stuff. Before I threw away the screen, I applied the image to the front of the second suitcase.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
