Roman Signer's Library of Marvels - Research Timeline and Research Questions
datasetposted on 2021-03-26, 08:20 authored by Rachel WithersRachel Withers
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 item contains a timeline of the research project and a set of research questions.
