The first major UK show of Brazilian artist Vik Muniz focuses on his series of portraits. The photographic images include works from art history and portraits of well-known people. His choice of materials to make his photographs reads like an extraordinary shopping list; chocolate, ink, peanut butter, sugar, soil, thread, glue, and more recently diamonds and caviar have all been used by Muniz. With a strong sense of irony and playful vitality he breathes new life into iconic images.
