Join Cheryl Penn on a walkabout of her current exhibition.
- 10 October 2014
Join us this Saturday for a walkabout of An Encyclopedia of Everything and Other Matters with Cheryl Penn.
Since concluding her Masters Degree in 2010 and the accompanying exhibition, 'The Reading Room', Cheryl has continued to investigate the artists’ book as an art medium. The schizoid nature of these works - textual/verbal, visual/pictorial and public/private has meant that this form of art can flaunt such a complex multiplicity of forms that “the book will never be done”. We live in Technology Times, where prognosticators continually predict the death of the book, but exhibitions such as this prove that “everything in the world exists in order to end up in a book.” - Stephané Mallarmé (1876)
The exhibition displays her current work in progress - the international collection, collaboration and display of over 385 small bookworks explicitly assembled for an installation titled An Encyclopedia of Everything. Other book collaborations and artists books are also on display - don't miss what promises to be a fascinating conversation.
