Art Metropole is excited to host the book launch for Andrew McLaren’s most recent bookwork, The Atlas to Nowhere. A rumination about cartography, circularity and mirrors, The Atlas of Nowhere includes a grand hole through the middle of itself and an excellent and detailed bibliography about cosmology, alchemy, as well as “miscellaneous donut shaped media.” Signed and numbered edition of 200.
Andrew A. McLaren is an artist currently based in Calgary, Alberta.
Having recently graduated from the MFA program at the University of Calgary (2008), I am currently working on interactive cartographic animations, and a new bookwork, DCLXVI.
During the past several years my work has mostly involved self-publishing projects and experimental Cartographic design, or Paracartography. Other projects have been in multiple objects (Dice Calendars) and Installation. My other site www.paracartography.com showcases some of my experiments in animation (February 2007).
