Geoffrey Farmer: A Way Out of the Mirror

Regular price $57.50

Geoffrey Farmer is internationally known for his laboriously crafted projects of epic proportions combining theatrical techniques with historically sourced material. Developed over extended periods of time, the artist’s multi-layered works pursue multiple narratives, appearing in a constant state of transformation, as he continues to revisit and alter them. This book is a complement to the project presented by the Vancouver-based artist at the Canadian pavilion for the 2017 Venice Bienniale. Titled after an Allen Ginsberg poem, A Way Out of the Mirror includes over two hundred drawings by Farmer, at once perfectly readable and traumatic, and a glossary compiled by curator Kitty Scott.
