Never Odd Or Even presents two recent bodies of work by New York-based artist Gareth Long. Untitled (Stories) is a set of lenticular prints accompanied by the book series Books (Untitled) that pivots around a disjunction between the oeuvre of the late American author J.D. Salinger and the design of his books. The unfinished novel, Bouvard et Pécuchet (1880) by Gustave Flaubert is the central point around which the other works in the exhibition revolve. Bouvard and Pécuchet’s Invented Desk for Copying, a suite of two-sided desk-sculptures form the core of these, alongside a suite of related projects.
