Judy Goldhill: “Contingencies of Light”

How can a book be an expression of light?

Light appears infinite yet it renders visible our most immediate and intimate human experiences.

The artists in this exhibition have approached the theme of light, and its polarity with darkness, through metaphor and aesthetics, through the intervention of physical structures and the entire removal of substance. It is interpreted as presence, as religious experience, as a reflection of our own gaze and as an awakening of perception. James Turrell in particular seeks to understand how, through light, we see ourselves see.

Book works by the following artists will be on display until 23rd December 2015:

Tauba Auerbach, Brian Catling, Edward Chell, Kathryn Faulkner, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Hamish Fulton, Judy Goldhill, Jane Grisewood, Kaho Kojima, Richard Long, Jenni McConnell, John McDowall, Mary Merkin, Stuart Mugridge, Martin Rogers, Dieter Roth, Ed Ruscha, Iain Sinclair, Liz West.

These works from the library’s special collection can be seen alongside a central display of James Turrell’s Infinite Light at Vernon Street Library.
