Withers, R (2021) Roman Signer's Library of Marvels (2015, 2020) [REF2021 collection].

Item Type: Artefact
Creators: Withers, R
Abstract: Library of Marvels is a long-term project based on ongoing conversation with Swiss artist Roman Signer and an exploration of the contents of his extensive personal library. The exhibitions arising from this enquiry re-deploy scanned out-of-copyright images to reflect the artist's omnivorous interests and generate montages that rhyme with the poetic imagery of his works, inviting new perspectives on the artist himself and the resonances of his works. This Collection contains information about the exhibitions Library of Marvels at The Rose Lipman Building, London, 2015, and Library of Marvels (Expanding Version) in St. Gallen and Hamburg, 2020. The Collection also contains a 300-word Statement about the research project, a Research Timeline and set of Research Questions, along with contextualising information relating to the larger Roman Signer's Library of Marvels project.
