"Translation" at Steven Wolf Fine Arts

On February 13, Molly Springfield will debut her own "translation," entirely in the form of drawings, of the first chapter of Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time, pieced together from every English translation of the novel.

Opening: Friday, February 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm
Panel Discussion: Saturday, February 14, 2:00 to 3:30 pm

The project consists of 28 individual drawings of photocopies of sequential pages from the first chapter of the book. This patchwork results in the repetition and omission of text from page to page, resolving into an incomplete and not-fully-readable rendition of the original.

On February 14, join the artist, Joshua Landy (professor of French and co-director of the Literature and Philosophy Initiative at Stanford University) and Kriston Capps (critic and reporter for the Guardian, Art Papers, and Art in America, among other publications), for a panel discussion.
