DISTRIBUTED THROUGH SPACE AND TIME

Distributed Through Space and Time 
Curated by Sarah McAvera; featuring artists: Christopher Campbell; Deirdre Mckenna; and Zoe Murdoch.

Curated by Sarah McAvera, Distributed through Space and Time offers three artists Nabokov’s Pale Fire as the starting point of a discussion on the blurred lines between reality and fiction. Christopher Campbell, Deirdre Mckenna and Zoe Murdoch have dissected the enigmatic text to create equally inscrutable and perplexing works across a range of media.

PALE FIRE

(A Poem in Four Cantos)

CANTO 1

I was the shadow of the waxwing slain

By the false azure in the windowpane

I was the smudge of ashen fluff–and I

Lived on, flew on, in the reflected sky,

And from the inside, too, I’d duplicate

Myself, my lamp, an apple on a plate:

Uncurtaining the night, I’d let dark glass

Hang all the furniture above the grass,

And how delightful when a fall of snow

10 Covered my glimpse of lawn and reached up so

As to make chair and bed exactly stand

Upon that snow, out in that crystal land!

Nabokov
