Angus Fairhurst

As a special feature in issue 20 of their online magazine TateShots, Tate online has provided this video remembering the art and humour of the Young British Artist Angus Fairhurst who died in March 2008. Artists Gavin Turk and Mat Collishaw, as well as Tate Director Nicholas Serota, recall their memories of Fairhurst, an English artist, who worked in installation, photography and video, alongside images of his huge range of work on exhibition at the Arnolfini in Bristol. This video can be viewed online or downloaded as an MP4 on a range of media player software such as iTunes and QuickTime player. A transcript of the commentary is also available.
