John Murphy: Between The Acts

'I'm aiming to create meaning in the space that exists between the words and the image, without at the same time specifying meaning...the subject comes
to rest somewhere outside the mere facts of a piece.'
- John Murphy interviewed by Jon Thompson, Aspects, Winter, 1979-80

Lisson Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by John Murphy previewing 21 February.

John Murphy's practice can be characterised through his use of existing material, such as reproductions and ready-mades. For this exhibition, his fourth at Lisson Gallery since 1985, Murphy has created visually austere but conceptually complex configurations of found images, objects and texts using post cards, books, film stills, painting and poetry.
