Carr-Harris, Ian

 



Ian Carr-Harris makes works that pass for other things, but are not quite. He makes sculptures that look like furniture, but have no such function. Carr-Harris poses them in the gallery space, creating a theatrical effect, as if they were part of some occluded narrative that we are too late to experience. The school bookish works included in the exhibition seem preponderantly about ruin, loss and abandonment; they are memorial and melancholic emblems of allegory.
 
This 86-page hardcover exhibition catalogue features images of Carr-Harris’s work spanning from 1992 – 2002, all of which were included in the survey exhibition, Works: 1992 – 2002. Also featured are an introduction by curator Philip Monk and an essay by Antonio Guzman.

This publication has received Honourable Mention in the Catalogue Design category as part of the 2003 OAAG Awards.
