The Islanders


Charles Avery is exhibiting ‘The Islanders: An Introduction’, an incredible and astonishing collection of drawings, prints and sculptures, in 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. —
