Featuring large-scale drawings, models, diagrams and text, 'The Plane of the Gods' is the latest chapter in Avery's epic 'Islanders' project, which sees the artist describe the topology and cosmology of an imaginary island, whose every feature - from its geology to its flora and fauna - embodies a philosophical proposition, problem or solution. Avery's mapping of the Island over a projected 10-year period may be interpreted as a meditation on making (and circulating) art, on what constitutes the spine of an artistic practice, and on the impossible business of seeking 'truth'. Once the project is complete, it will be encapsulated in several large, leather-bound encyclopaedic volumes.
