Thomas J Price – A Place Beyond

This special edition takes its starting point from Thomas J Price’s 9ft figurative sculpture of the same title, first unveiled at Hauser & Wirth Downtown LA in 2023 and derived from an open call in the city.

‘A Place Beyond’ acts as an emblem for marginalised bodies, leaning away from social or racial profiling and instead celebrating the intrinsic strength of the individual. Price continues to reference narratives within classical sculpture, featuring a subtle nod to Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s ‘David’ in the formal structure of the body and sense of tension in the twist of the torso.

Re-created at this more intimate scale, Price transforms our reading of the fictional figure at one glance and highlights our relationship with the art object, reinforcing central concepts within his practice in relation to materiality, provenance, and representation. All sales from the edition will support a collaborative commission with V&A East, two free cultural destinations – V&A East Storehouse and Museum – opening in east London in 2025.
