Charles Avery: Onomatopoeia (Walther König/Koenig Books, London, 2011)

Of the many inspired curatorial concepts that Harald Szeemann devised in the course of his career, one of the most suggestive was “individual mythologies.” Szeemann debuted the term as the guiding thesis of the legendary Documenta 5, 1972; he later explicated it (in an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist collected in the latter’s A Brief History of Curating) as “intense intentions that can take diverse shapes: people create their own sign systems, which take time to be deciphered.”

The Port

Published by Walther König/Koenig Books, London.
Text by René Zechlin.

For over ten years, the visionary Scottish artist Charles Avery has been using drawings and sculptures to create and populate a philosophical allegory called The Islanders. In 2008, Avery published an introduction to this project, and part two is this new artist's book, which reproduces as its centerpiece Avery's huge drawing "View of the Port at Onomatopoeia."
