Julian Opie

Lisson Gallery | 27 Bell Street | London

Everything here is a sample. What do you want—man or woman? Both? Separately or together? Make the choice, then decide on their poses. They can stand, kneel, sit, or maybe recline, propped up on one elbow. You can dress them to taste as well, like Barbie or the fridge-magnet woman with the range of stick-on outfits. To make things extra specially convenient they come in a range of sizes and formats to suit your individual needs, available space, and budget: large images on vinyl, small color photos on board, highway signs, wallpaper, memorial slabs, window stickers, computer programs, light boxes, or wooden sculptures. The full range of products, on offer in the catalogue, is so rich and varied that only a small selection could be displayed here. But don’t worry, because there are plenty of other showrooms in Wolfsburg, New York, Delhi, Zurich, Boston, and, oh, all over the place.
