Asmather - Ibn Battuta and the day they left for the high pass
This exhibition is a metaphysical contemplation on landscape and the journey. It draws particularly from the 13th century trans-continental journey under taken by Ibn Batutta, whose resulting travelogue is entitled ' A gift to those who contemplate the wonders of the cities and the marvel of the ways'
Asmathers’ initial conceptual interests primarily resided in the idea of navigation and the relationship between opposites such as; narrative and form, east and west, eternity and duration, form as sign, discernment and interpretation.
Join us as Asmather brings us a printmaking exhibition of a contemporary struggle with a medieval epic.
