The Island: An Icinori Exhibition

May 19 / 10:00 am - June 25 / 7:00 pm

ELCAF and NOW Gallery present: The Island, a site-specific, interactive storytelling experience for all ages imagined and created by French illustrator duo Icinori. As visitors step into the story, they begin their journey told through a three-dimensional landscape, characters and words. Along the way they will pick up clues and will find an ending revealed by looking into the centre of the island. The installation explores the possibilities of storytelling and puts the public in the middle of the narrative, hinting at the importance of imagination and flights of fancy.

We are extremely honoured to have Icinori as this year’s ELCAF artists-in-residence. Icinori, aka Mayumi Otero & Raphael Urwiller, are a French duo whose collaborative efforts have seen them illustrate, design, print and publish works across a range of mediums.


PRIVATE VIEW: THURSDAY 18 MAY (18.00 – 21.00)

The Rise of Riso

June 8 / 9:30 am - July 10 / 9:00 pm

This exhibition explores the riso printing process and its rise in popularity as a low-cost medium for self-publishers and illustrated publications. A risograph is a stencil duplicator, a mechanised imprint using a screen that allows ink to be passed through. Similar in speed, shape and interface to a photocopier, but with the tactile print of a lithograph or screen-print, it has become a popular medium for graphic prints, small-scale zines and books. Part of the ELCAF x Foyles season, it will focus on seven international riso printing studios and small publishers including Hato Press, UK; Inuit, Italy; Peow, Sweden and Howdy Printer, US that have produced comics, sequential illustration and other graphic narratives.


PRIVATE VIEW: Wednesday 7 JUNE (18.30 – 20.30)
