For the exhibition drips the room, Ian Law presents a new body of work centred around fourteen short texts developed over the course of a year and presented at Piper Keys for the first time.

About

The texts are the result of a writing exercise that began after a book Law was reading in the bath fell into the lukewarm water. Left to dry, a pink mould grew across the book’s pages. This random growth marked approximately fifteen-hun- dred words which the artist transcribed and slowly reconstituted into fragmentary poems. Each text conveys a psycholog- ical world furnished by personal items and human interactions, while the series suggests a modest theatre played out within a domestic space.

In drips the room, Law melds the materials of personal memory, cultural reference and the found object. Here, the de- construction of a book allows for repurposing, just as decay allows for renewal.
