Made across a 32-year span, the works in Tabula Rasa unite the central themes in the art of John Stezaker, from capacities of collage to the current flow in an age of mass media. Here, silkscreens on canvas from the early 1990s and film still collages from the 1990s and 2009 are brought together for the first time. Tabula Rasa is an important overview of Stezaker’s work centered around the notion of screens, voids and cut-outs. An essay by Michael Bracewell, ‘The Space Between’, looks at the connections between this selection of 13 works. Also included are a series of installation views from Stezaker’s 2010 exhibition at The Approach, London.
