Biological Hermeneutics at Chetham’s Library

Sarah Craske

Biological Hermeneutics at Chetham’s Library, Manchester 29 July — 26 August 2017 Entrance is free

This summer, Chetham’s Library presents the work of transdisciplinary artist Sarah Craske. Biological Hermeneutics is based on a 300-year-old copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, discovering and making visible the microbial life that has silently accrued through the centuries upon its pages. Going beyond one specific book, the show is also a speculative presentation of Biological Hermeneutics as an established and respected transdiscipline, within the historic walls of Chetham’s Library.
