Description

Nicholas Mangan’s art practice emanates from an instinctive fascination with creative and cultural enquiry, especially in relation to material transformation. This artist book presents the results of Mangan’s research into the improbable links between: the now-demolished Walter Burley Griffin Pyrmont incinerator in Sydney; pre-Columbian architecture of Meso America, particularly the Mayan Palace of the Governor of Uxmal in the Yucatan, Mexico; George Kubler’s treatise on ‘The Shape of Time’; and the form and function of a Canon NP6030 photocopier. Mangan’s book demonstrates that a critical artistic practice can provide an eloquent alternative to traditional academic investigation and publication. His book can be read as a visual thesis that proposes new narratives and frameworks for considering innovation, destruction, reproduction and mutation
