Cut-Outs and Cut-Ups: Hans Christian Andersen and William Seward Burroughs
Writers' Less Famous Works in PaperThe Irish Museum of Modern Art is delighted to announce the opening of the new exhibition Cut-Outs and Cut-Ups: Hans Christian Andersen and William Seward Burroughs, in the New Galleries on Wednesday April 9th.
This exhibition is the first to compare these legendary writers and fascinating, but little-known, visual artists. Hailing from different origins and different periods, Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) and William Seward Burroughs (1914-1997) nevertheless shared many significant connections. Both were highly productive and revolutionary writers, intrepid travellers and larger-than-life personalities who developed important collaborative relationships. Key to the 124 works in this exhibition is the artists' mutual engagement with cutting-out pictures and stencils which involve silhouettes and shadows. Their use of brilliant colours and metallic surfaces relate closely to their writings.
The Andersen material consists of a wide range of drawings, cut-outs and picture books containing his original collages. The Burroughs artworks include paintings on paper and wood, and collaborative projects with lifelong friend, artist Brion Gysin, including their legendary Dreamachine. The exhibition continues until June 29th.
