Abstract

An exhibition catalogue to accompany Brass Art's solo exhibition Gestured. The installation of more than twenty new artworks was made in response to Chetham’s Library, Manchester and was commissioned by Arts & Heritage. The installation ran from 16 October – 8 December 2017. The commissioned constellation of artworks were made in response to artefacts discovered within the archive including the forms of gesture found in William Cowper’s anatomical reference books, the prints of William Hogarth, the books of Renaissance polymath Athanasius Kircher and the notations of John Dee. The essay Ways of Reading Gestured (Rowan Bailey, 2017) offered its own way of reading the installation, drawing upon these sources of influence and the underlying sculptural motivations informing the work on display. The folding limited edition book was designed by Jack Hodgson.
