Save Event: ...Is For...

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Simon Leahy-Clark’s new work “…IS FOR…”, is an archaeology of letters where the symbols of language are presented as monuments left abandoned in unspecified landscapes.


Collaged from black and white newspaper photos, the works appear as archaic prints, Piranesian ruins of a bygone era, a possible record of a “Grand Tour” of a past, or future, civilisation. The meaning, however, of these alphabetic, architectural relics is not fixed – they remain as mysterious as Stonehenge or the monoliths on ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ (1968); in their dystopian view they also allude to the final scene in Planet of the Apes (1968). The letters encompass scenes in which can be found small traces of activity, a touch of human presence in contemplation of landscapes assembled from the remnants of everyday life.
