Edition of 40
For over 40 years, Matt Mullican has been developing a codified language of symbols, signs, maps, charts and diagrams in an attempt to articulate the complexities of existence.
Inspired by Camden Arts Centre’s history as a public library, Mullican’s exhibition layers his multiple methods of categorisation and ordering. His personal notebooks, which are a cornerstone to the exhibition, are collections of accumulated knowledge and time, recording his thoughts in lists, numbers, texts and pictures. His edition, The Sequence of Things, is a double-page spread from his notebook during the time of the exhibition’s development, testing out possible titles to represent the different ideas and relationships at play.
