Blueprint for the DisOrder of Things

12 April 2022

 
Indigo, the colour used for a “blueprint” is central to this exhibition. Working across multiple media, artists books, monoprints, ‘veils’ and a video, this body of work plays on the title of Michel Foucault’s book The Order of Things. Many of the iterations incorporate the text Las Meninas, the first chapter of The Order of Things.
 
Started during the first hard lockdown in 2020, it is a body of work driven by the emotional, social, and political changes that have come about as a result of Covid-19. The texts throughout the exhibition are disrupted as a metaphor for the way in which the ordered world has been rendered one of DisOrder.
