Description

Books and the act of reading have always been central to Derek Sullivan’s work. Where he has frequently drawn on the book’s mutable form, The Missing Novella sees the artist introduce literary elements such as traces of plot and allusions to characters. In his exhibition at Oakville Galleries, Sullivan staged Gairloch estate—formerly a private home—as a stylized country house inspired by well-known fictional settings, such as E.M. Forster’s Howards End and Belle Ombre, the home of Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley. Designed to mimic the dust jacket of Sullivan’s eponymous missing text, this fold-out publication features photographs of the exhibition and curator Jon Davies’ essay “The House of Fiction Has Many Rooms.”
