The new work in situ at Excelsior Works in South Bermondsey, London. The missing section of prints will be on view at Multiplied
Multiplied in association with art organisation V22 is proud to support the creation of a new work by Maurice Carlin. Carlin has undertaken a 3-week-long performance work – to ‘publish’ a 5,000 square foot warehouse floor plate with CMYK prints and live web streaming, resulting in a large-scale installation at V22’s Excelsior Works building in South Bermondsey. Carlin’s printing method is inspired by ancient Chinese rubbing techniques originally used to reproduce the imprint of stone inscriptions, allowing information to be duplicated and distributed – the first known form of publishing. The installation on view at Multiplied comprises a section of this larger project.
Maurice Carlin’s work explores artistic structures and processes – themes that emerged from an independent peer-led educational structure he co-founded in 2007. Islington Mill Art Academy has been acknowledged as one of the first in the recent wave of alternative art schools set up in response to raised student fees and the debate surrounding the relevance and usefulness of mainstream art education. Recently Carlin has been exploring the subject of shared ownership through the production of ‘distributed installations’ – artworks made of multiple elements, which have the potential to exist individually or together as one work, where the life of the work beyond the studio and exhibition becomes equally important.
Carlin's recent exhibitions and projects include Name it by Trying to Name it, The Drawing Center, New York (2015), PRESS ROOM, Creative Time Summit, Venice Biennale (2015), The Negligent Eye, The Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool (2014), Self-Interruption, Jack Chiles Gallery, New York (2013) and First...Next...Then...Finally, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2013).
Individual prints from this installation are for sale. Please contact the artist for further details: mauricecarlin.com/contact/
