I went to see the Grayson Perry exhibition The Vanity of Small Differences, 2012, at the RHA, Dublin.
The Vanity of Small Differences consists of six tapestries. The tapestries were created alongside the Channel 4, Bafta-winning documentary series All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry, 2012, in which Perry visited three very different regions of England, exploring the taste of the different social groups he encountered.
“The tapestries tell the story of class mobility, for I think nothing has as strong an influence on our aesthetic taste as the social class in which we grow up. I am interested in the politics of consumerism and the story of popular design but, for this project, I focus on the emotional investment we make in the things we choose to live with, wear, eat, read or drive. Class and taste run deep in our character – we care. This emotional charge is what draws me to a subject” – Grayson Perry.
