The People and Things of Onomatopoeia: Part 2
Pilar Corrias Gallery, 54 Eastcastle Street
13 January 2017 – 17 February 2017
The People and Things of Onomatopoeia: Part 2 is the latest instalment of Charles Avery’s epic project, The Islanders. Since 2005, Avery has devoted his practice to the depiction of a fictional island with its own population, customs, cosmology, and architecture, expressed through the form of large-scale drawings, sculptures, installations, texts, and moving image.
This solo presentation brings together new drawings—including a vista of the inner circle of Onomatopoeia Zoo—portraits, furniture, jewellery, posters, and bibelots, giving an insight into The Islander’s culture.
