Syracuse University Libraries Hosts New Biblio Gallery Exhibition: ‘Isle of Brendan’
Syracuse University Libraries’ new Biblio Gallery exhibition on the fourth floor of Bird Library is a cartography piece titled “Isle of Brendan” by Eric M. Warren, a fourth-year student in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. The exhibition runs through mid-March.
“Taking inspiration from the microcosms that surround us in the natural world, I have found that often the maps we draw yield fantastical elements themselves. Through the gathering of hundreds of lines, symbols and words, and the arrangement of them all into a specific order, we generate a greater meaning that returns to us worlds which we do and do not know,” Warren says. “I implore you to view this piece not as a map, but rather as an orchestration of familiar parts, coalesced into an unfamiliar and nonexistent land.”
For more information about the Biblio Gallery, contact S. Ann Skiold, librarian for Decorative & Applied Arts, Design, Art History, Film, Photography, and Spanish & Italian at Syracuse University Libraries, or apply to submit an exhibition via the Biblio Gallery website.
