Ways of Reading 'Gestured'

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contribution


A catalogue essay/thought review of Brass Art's exhibition Gestured; an installation of artworks responding to Chethams Library.

The installation ran from 16 October – 8 December 2017.

The commissioned constellation of artworks responded to the forms of gesture found in anatomical reference books, the prints of William Hogarth and the notations of John Dee. The essay offers its own way of reading the installation, drawing upon these sources of influence and the underlying sculptural motivations informing the work on display.
