Charles Avery at Pilar Corrias

January 2014, Culture

One of our local galleries, Pilar Corrias, has a superb show from Charles Avery at the moment. Featured in Nicholas Bourriaud Tate Triennial in 2009, Charles Avery is one of the UK’s rising star in the contemporary art world and is certainly close to being nominated for the Turner Prize.


This exhibition are works based around an imagined art exhibition in a museum on Charles fantastical island called Onomatopoeia. The island has been a continuous project for him over the last 10 years where his drawings and sculptures focus around the people on the island and its cartography.
