Map of an Englishman

By Grayson Perry, 2004. A psychogeographical map of the artist’s mind:

Etched in a mock-Tudor style, an imaginary island, vaguely reminding the form of the brain, is surrounded by the seas of Perry’s psychological flaws (Schizophrenia, Delirium, Anorexia Nervosa), while the countryside is defined by the artist’s “prejudices, fears, desires and vanities” in the shape of the counties of “Sex”, “Tender”, “Cliche” or “Dreams”.
