Peter Saville is most famous for his work with Factory Records, the music label that represented iconic bands like Joy Division and New Order. Saville has a unique ability to re-contextualize images from one genre into another, making him endlessly relevant to post-modern practice as a whole.
His new print, After Closer [Digital Edition], refers to the transition of the band Joy Division to New Order, following the suicide of Joy Divisionâ€™s singer and songwriter, Ian Curtis. It was originally conceived as a limited-edition screen print in 2011 for the Postmodernism exhibition held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Now, it's a high quality certified video, accompanied by the hi-res image of the work, making for a new experience in buying a truly digital piece of art.
