press release

As part of the Edinburgh Art Festival 2015, Ingleby Gallery will present a major solo exhibition by Charles Avery entitled The People and Things of Onomatopoeia.

The exhibition will include new drawings and sculptural works all of which stem from the fictional port of Onomatopoeia, the main town in Avery’s epic project The Islanders.

The exhibition coincides with a new public commission for the Edinburgh Art Festival. A tree from the municipal park of Onomatopoeia will stand over five metres tall, ripe with strange fruit, cast in bronze will be sited in Waverley Station to offer a meeting point, or a place for momentary escape and contemplation.
