The Arts Council Collection will be presenting Enrico David’s major installation 'Madreperlage' (2003) and more recent works on paper at the Walker Art Gallery as part of the 2012 Liverpool Biennial.
Enrico David was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2009, but this will be the first solo presentation of his work in England outside London. David works in painting, sculpture and collage, often drawing on craft techniques.
'Madreperlage' (2003) characteristically includes semi-grotesque theatrical figures as well as elements that veer towards the vocabulary of design.
The exhibition is part of 'The Arts Council Collection Partnerships supported by Christie’s', a new collaboration between the Arts Council Collection and four regional museums to develop a dynamic programme of displays and exhibitions based on loans from the Collection.
