Geoffrey Farmer: A Way Out of the Mirror

Geoffrey Farmer is internationally known for his laboriously crafted projects of epic proportions combining theatrical techniques with historically sourced material. Developed over extended periods of time, the artist’s multi-layered works pursue multiple narratives, appearing in a constant state of transformation, as he continues to revisit and alter them. This book is a complement to the project presented by the Vancouver-based artist at the Canadian pavilion for the 2017 Venice Bienniale. Titled after an Allen Ginsberg poem, A Way Out of the Mirror includes over two hundred drawings by Farmer, at once perfectly readable and traumatic, and a glossary compiled by curator Kitty Scott.

Co-published with the National Gallery of Canada.

Kitty Scott, ed.
