Idol Hands presents a wealth of source and visual references, alongside original drawings from the artist’s unique and expanded narrative of imagery stemming from alternative means of communication such as braille, morse code and sign language. The publication formed a part of the installation of Elliot's solo exhibition at Platform Southwark, that introduced the natural to act as an organic antithesis to his industrial influences. Idol Hands features an essay from writer and curator Charlie Mills that explores the history and societal influence of dance music and rave culture, a subculture that features prominently in Elliot’s continued artistic investigation of Britain’s post-industrial history.
Idol Hands is finished with a silkscreen printed cover using reflective ink and is available in either a red or blue colourway. Get 50% off of Elliots first book Bodywork when you purchase Idol Hands and Bodywork together.
