Celebrating London’s Underground, Mark Wallinger (born 1959) created a vast work of public art. In each of the 270 stations, he placed a uniquely designed labyrinth, which this volume documents, with photographs of all 270 labyrinths in situ.

Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger is one of Britain's most intellectually curious, socially committed and unpredictable artists. He is known for work that formally and conceptually negotiates seemingly opposed elements, like "Sleeper" (2004), in which he spent nine nights in Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie in a bear costume. For his contribution to the Hayward Gallery's series of artist-curated projects, Wallinger explores the notion of liminality--an intermediate or transitional condition--which is illustrated through the thresholds and borders, simulacra and mirror images found in the work of William Blake, Vija Celmins, Tacita Dean, Thomas Demand, Albrecht Dürer, Bruce Nauman, Guiseppe Penone and Fred Sandback.

This first comprehensive monograph on the provocative British conceptual artist Mark Wallinger, born in 1959 and winner of the 2007 Turner Prize, includes key works from the 1980s through today. In his intelligent and often humorous artworks, Wallinger addresses current social themes in a variety of media--including painting, video and installation--to focus on issues relating to religion, politics and cultural identity. Probably best known for the relatively puny life-sized sculpture of Jesus Christ (crowned in barbed wire) that he installed for one year on the massive, empty Fourth Plinth of London's Trafalgar Square in 1999, he won the Turner Prize for State Britain, a monumental 2007 installation that recreated a five-year-long anti-Iraq war protest in front of Parliament that was destroyed by the London police in 2006.
