|NEW BOOKS & EDITIONS AT INGLEBY GALLERY|
Ingleby Gallery is delighted to confirm the four artists for Billboard for Edinburgh: Year 4 and to announce the following new books and editions stock.
Cornelia Parker launches Billboard for Edinburgh: Year 4
The 13th billboard in Ingleby Gallery's unique public art project has just been unveiled. Cornelia Parker's Hot Poker will be on display for three months until the end of October 2011. Like many of Parker's works, her billboard image is born from an initially destructive process. Parker folds layers of A4 paper, then pierces the paper with a burning hot poker. Once unfolded, a brutal yet strangely beautiful image is revealed.
As part of the project, Parker has created an elegant and playful limited edition print exploring the traditions of trompe l'oeil using new laser-cutting technology.
The three other artists participating in Billboard for Edinburgh: Year 4 are Ryan Gander, Ruth Ewan and Anya Gallaccio. For more information or to subscribe and receive all four prints from the year for a special price, please contact the gallery.
New Prints by Charles Avery
Six new prints by Charles Avery are currently on display in the Print Room at Ingleby Gallery. Published by Pauper's Press in London, Avery's new prints feature strange characters from his fictional town of Onomatopoeia. All six prints from the series can also be viewed on the Ingleby Gallery website.
100 Billion Suns by Katie Paterson
Katie Paterson's work is multidisciplinary and conceptually driven with an emphasis on nature, ecology, geology and cosmology. This new print by Paterson is based on a her 100 Billion Suns performance project launched in Venice this Summer to coincide with the 54th Venice Biennale. The performance features a confetti cannon with thousands of brightly coloured pieces of paper whose colours correspond to those of Gamma Ray Bursts that have occurred in our universe. Gamma Ray Bursts are the brightest explosions in the universe and they burn with a luminosity 100 billion times brighter than that of our sun.
Sol Sans by Ian Whittlesea
Ingleby Gallery's current exhibition Mystics or Rationalists? takes its inspiration from sentence number one of Sol LeWitt's Sentences on Conceptual Art a sequence of 35 statements defining LeWitt's personal parameters for making and understanding conceptual art. These were first published in 1969 as series of handwritten sentences. Ingleby Gallery is delighted to stock a new limited edition print by Ian Whittlesea which uses Lewitt's original handwriting to create a new typeface called Sol Sans.
New Book - Richard Forster: Fast & Slow Time
Fast & Slow Time is a new hardback publication produced to celebrate Richard Forster's major solo exhibition at the Middlesborough Institute for Modern Art (mima). The publication features excellent reproductions of the 52 drawings that Forster has made over the past calendar year as well as a new short story by writer Colm Tóibín.
The publication is available for the special price of £10 plus p&p for the duration of Richard Forster's mima exhibition.
