Nobody would argue pottery is the obvious medium for exploring Britain’s deeper social woes. Well, nobody other than Grayson Perry, who has shown in previous series for Channel 4 an ability (a) to coax revealing views from ordinary folk and then (b) to work what he hears into richly decorated, pleasingly odd works of art.
The approach has earned him Bafta nominations (in 2016 and 2017) and wins (in 2013 and 2015). Here, he turns his attention to the UK’s divisions over Brexit, inviting the public to contribute images and ideas with which he can cover the surface of two enormous pots: one for Brexiteers and one for Remainers.
At the start of 2017, Grayson Perry set out to make art about Brexit. He wanted to seek suggestions, dig into the data and visit the two sides' heartlands. But in the middle of his investigations, Theresa May called a snap election. In this one-off, he tries to uncover the emotions, beliefs and desires that drive people's loyalty to one political tribe or another.
