Simon Brown - The Weight of Knowledge' opens in New York

27 November 2014
Metro is delighted to support internationally recognized interior and lifestyle photographer Simon Brown producing C Type prints for ‘The Weight of Knowledge’, his new exhibition which opened in New York earlier this week.

The exhibition features meticulously composed images of books. Richly nuanced in their use of colour and what the artist has called the "perfect imperfection" of daylight, these images give us the book as objet d'art without stripping it of its textual status.

The books are tattered, misshapen, spotted with mould, bindings are frayed, ink washed away until it's nearly invisible.  The tactility of Brown's battered volumes reminds us that the physical world is constantly assaulting and altering language, but they also, more subtly, show us that words change the world as well, a fact Brown acknowledges by binding his books in bricklike units or stacking them up in towers that recall both ancient ziggurats and modern skyscrapers.
