Charles Avery - The Islanders


Fascinating artworks about a fictional island - contains a lot of interesting philosophy.


The light was subdued and the photographs are bad. But I post a few new ones because I got some questions about the artist and the book.

The Islanders: An Introduction

28 February – 7 June 2009

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen


For the past four years, Charles Avery has been working on an epic project which seeks to define an imaginary island off the Scottish coast. Through drawings, models and texts Avery describes the topology, cosmology and inhabitants of this fictional territory, creating a challenging space for philosophical inquiry. With around twenty drawings and prints, ten sculptures and twenty works on paper with mixed techniques, the exhibition ‘The Islanders: An Introduction’ brings together the project so far.
