Your English Panic Holiday White Patches Operation Broxit Smash Wall Decal (Red Middle), 2024

Anish Kapoor's work A Brexit, a Broxit, We All Fall Down commissioned for The Guardian in 2019 described the piece as ' the result of self-harm (...) This is a surrealist work, one that seeks to let the unconscious out. But instead of his own demons, lets out the shadows in the nation’s psyche: yours, mine and Jacob Rees-Mogg’s. For, like a black hole of melancholy, something about this bottomless pit is alluring. Part of you wants to fall in.'
