Associated with the New British Sculpture movement since the end of the 1970s, Richard Wentworth operates in what he has termed a "readymade landscape," transforming everyday objects such as tables, light bulbs, ladders, and buckets into new assemblages. His work frequently employs wordplay and association to subvert our conventional systems of classification, as in Mode-module-modular (2004), in which the iconic modernist Eames coat rack is attached to a standard wooden wine crate, creating a sculptural pairing of colored spheres and holes that resembles a child's toy.
