17 June to 8 July 2017
CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery, Clarke’s Bridge, Wandesford Quay, Cork
A multi-disciplinary exhibition by Leslie Mutchler + Jason Urban (USA) – part of a trail of shows accompanying the FIRST EDITION Print Symposium, initiated by Cork Printmakers and presented as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2017.
Babel Unbound, focuses on ephemeral editions, prints and printed multiples within the context of the library as a curated and performed space.
A series of printed works, risographs, xeroxes and screen-prints become a publication pulled apart, ephemeral and in-flux, lining walls of the CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery. Photographs, 3D printed objects and large-scale digital prints break up the monotony of the splayed publication and help to loosely connect pieces of text, re-paginated essays, screen-captured images, and scans of book spreads. The gallery becomes a circular space without hierarchy; with no beginning and no end- babel unbound.
