Unsurprisingly, given the artist’s parallel literary career, Coupland’s artwork has often engaged with text and literature. This area of the exhibition will include everything from his “nests” in which the artist literally chewed copies of his own published works and reformed the material into hornet’s nests to the recent work Slogans for the Early 21st Century which contains more than 100 statements about the contemporary world in which we live.
