Morris Wazney creates a library comprised of a series of books with fictitious titles invites viewers to create imaginary content each book could contain. The value of books is that they are a repository of emancipatory knowledge. This installation reminds us that we don’t have to be constrained by the limits of the curated inventory of a library. Each title is hand stenciled with black letters and the stark white jackets hearken back to the focus on content rather than
literature, packaged to appeal to our image-driven culture.
As a sculpture/Installation artist Morris Wazney’s work is often site-specific and focuses on the juxtaposition between void and space. Utilizing the arts and craft ethos, it is important to have an element of craftsmanship in the work. Working in a multitude of materials, Wazney’s practice is currently focused on bronzes cast sculptures and installations that incorporate found objects.
