EXHIBITION TEXTS

Julia McInerney’s Archipelago, takes as its point of departure the work of 20th century Swiss writer Robert Walser. For this exhibition, the structure of the novel- form serves as a model for the treatment of space. From entering the gallery, to forming a voyage in miniature through the works, to finally departing, the viewer enacts a spatial equivalent of reading a book, whereby a passage is formed between front and back cover, beginning and ending. Archipelago, in particular, explores the shift from typography into topography, engaging in questions of translation between the sculptural and the literary.
