- Saatchi Gallery through The Art Fund
In 2000, he wanted to make it possible for galleries beyond London to show new British artists to a wider audience. Charles Saatchi and the Art Fund therefore selected 39 works to give to 7 galleries throughout the country. These galleries were chosen for their interest in contemporary art but also because they had a limited budget for such purchases. The works epitomise the creative energy of young British artists during the 1990s and today and show the diversity of these artists' ambitions and concerns and the wide range of media that they draw upon to express them. The containers created by Marcus Taylor are large enough to hold a body, but they are ghostlike and devoid of human presence, while Simon English uses more conventional media to create sets for bodies contained within boxes.
