Ordinal Solid
Ordinal Solid by artist-collaborators Leslie Mutchler and Jason Urban is the third exhibition of a body of work
based on the library as a curated, collaborative and performed space. Previous iterations were exhibited as
Babel Unbound in Cork, Ireland and Babel Revisited at Space Gallery in Portland, ME.
Photographs, large-scale digital prints, and vinyl text paginate the gallery walls referencing over-sized pages
from a book. Pieces of text and abstracted, symbolic images loosely connect threads of research and
meandering thoughts on the library. A compass-like instrument, an archive of sorts, firmly positions itself central
in the space. Objects, such as magenta finger-cots, a chunk of magnesium carbonate, 3D printed totems and a
meteor fragment tell a story rich in materiality and lost in contemplation.
