Alan Johnston was invited to use the Institute's white walls as a blank sheet of paper on which to base his drawing. Arriving in Leeds a month before his show was due to open, Johnston divided Galleries 1, 2 and 3 up into unequal frames, drawing directly with a pencil onto the walls in strips covering an area of about 2 square cm. Navigating the corners, recesses and architraves, the space which was left was equally as important as the space that he filled in; constantly measuring the shape in space, his sculpture is made out of architecture.
This beautifully bound and illustrated catalogue features an introduction by Penelope Curtis (Curator of the Henry Moore Institute) and two texts:
A Reflective Geometry
A Screen Before One's Eyes
