Charles LeDray is one of the best kept secrets in contemporary art. Based in a small studio in New York, LeDray labours for years on each new project.
His project for Artangel is based on clothing. Large amounts of men's clothing - suits, shirts, ties, gloves - all different, all hand-made and intimately detailed and mostly looking second hand. Surrogates for identity, they embody the desire to reveal and conceal, to be marked out as an individual and belong to a tribe. They work together as one entity rather than as individual items.
