People who have saved this event:



Tom McCarthy’s new novel Satin Island is transformed into a gallery installation at fig-2, coinciding with its publication. Realised in collaboration with set designer Laura Hopkins, the exhibition presents a real-space version of the world that the book’s protagonist inhabits, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to physically step into, walk around, touch and interact with a work of fiction.

The exhibition will host two major public events: A ‘Think Tank’ with director of the Weltkulturen Museum, Frankfurt, Dr. Clémentine Deliss, feted media consultant Alfie Spencer and leading critic and novelist Mark Blacklock [Please book here] and a ‘Company Report: All-day reading of Satin Island’ with specially invited figures from the world of writing, theatre and art who will read McCarthy’s novel from start to finish, non-stop in relay, in the style of an extended press conference or AGM statement.
