The Islanders

Installation view of Charles Avery's 'The Islanders: An Introduction', at Parasol Unit. A decade-long investigation that uses the mapping of an imaginary island in text, drawing and sculpture to explore philosophical positioning and enquiry. The show comprises work completed since the project began in 2004 and has a gloriously unfinished, meandering quality. I was very much aware of being allowed to see a work in progress, particularly with the drawings which are shown uncompleted with crop-markings around the edges and sparse suggestive areas. It's on until 8th November.
