Never Odd Or Even

Gareth Long
Southern Alberta Art Gallery
Artists' Books
16.5 × 24 × 1 cm

Publication documenting two recent bodies of work by New York-based artist Gareth Long. Untitled (Stories) is a set of lenticular prints accompanied by the book series that pivots around a disjunction between the oeuvre of J.D. Salinger and the design of his books: the original Little, Brown & Co. book cover designs are a starting point for nine large-scale prints. An unfinished Gustave Flaubert novel is the central point around which the other works revolve. Bouvard and Pécuchet’s ‘Invented Desk for Copying’ is a suite of two-sided desk-sculptures that form the core of a related suite of projects. At the heart of both works lies a fascination with books as uniquely flexible vehicles of meaning, as complex compendia to be read, re-read and mis-read.

With texts by Frances Loeffler, Kevin Killian, Maria Fusco, Erika Balsom, Simon Critchley and Gareth Long
