Tom Phillips “Pages from A Humument”


poster for Tom Phillips “Pages from A Humument”

This event has ended.

From a chance encounter in a London thrift store with A Human Document, a Victorian novel by W. H. Mallock, Tom Phillips embarked upon a project which has continued for almost half a century. Altering the text of the original novel in a series of variations, by drawing and overpainting, splicing and collaging, he has generated a counter-document titled A Humument; a testament to the endless potential for the generation and reinterpretation of ideas. Presented as a large-scale installation, this exhibition features selected pages from A Humument and coincides with a London display of the work at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition.
