John Plowman - The Reading Room






"Handel Street Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by John Plowman. The objects that Plowman has been making recently are the outcomes of performances in which the private act of reading is made public, as the book is read the pages are torn and re-stacked within a plywood structure. Using his own library as his source material Plowman has read a set of Encyclopaedia Britannica to produce ‘mis-un-pedia’ and ‘mis-un-library’."

I can't believe I have just missed this exhibition.

What an interesting idea! The picture with the pages on the wall is pretty awesome :)
