Matt Mullican: The Meanings of Things. Who Feels the Most Pain?


This publication is the book-form of a work by Matt Mullican, The Meaning of Things (who feels the most pain?) (2014), consisting of 676 collages and texts on sheets of standard printing paper. At the approximate centre of each collage is a small image that appears to be a printout of an image procured from the Internet. Around the images are hand-drawn, quasi-calligraphic marks (in black only), and curved, giving the impression of an organic form in the manner of ornate, rococo frames. First shown at Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery in Philadelphia, 2016.
