The exhibition will showcase Andrew Malone's Artist's Books and framed work combining match-boxes, cut-out elements from maps, books and objects including insects, feathers and pressed flowers. These will be displayed alongside related objects including birds and insects from the Beaney collections that will be selected and installed with input from UCA students. Some of these items have not been on display before.
'I have a strong attachement to the natural world and a nostalgia for how collecting started for me. The Observer's and Ladybird books, cigarette cards, maps and stamps that I use to make my work come from a more innocent age when i would pore over them by night and be out in the countryside looking for their contents by day. My work is a continuation of that obession with collecting, cataloguing and observing'.
Andrew Malone lives and works in Whitstable, Kent and is Course Leader for Further Education at UCA, Canterbury. He has exhibited at The London Art Book Fair all over the world. He has work in the Tate Britain collection and many Artists Book collections in the UK, Europe and Russia. A workshop relating to the themes of collecting, catalouging and displaying will be offered by Andrew and UCA students alongside the exhibition. Selling exhibition.
