A collaboration with Empty Spaces Cinema, the Library of TSOIT looks to promote the sharing of knowledge and interests, and explore the repurposing of abandoned spaces. To create this exhibition, TSOIT invited writers, designers, illustrators, artists, historians, musicians and curators – all with links to Liverpool – to produce something fascinating in response to an area of knowledge. The subject areas are inspired by traditional means of categorising knowledge (such as encyclopaedias and other reference works) and include- amongst others- Popular Culture, The Land, Religion and Belief Systems, Industry, and Wonder!
Included in the exhibition are written and sound works, posters, paintings, publications and animation, providing a repository of interesting things. A cabinet of curiosity for the inquisitive observer.
The Library of TSOIT is presented as part of the Independents Biennial 2018.
The Society of Interesting Things (TSOIT) was founded by Chris Jackson and Jonathan Spencer, and is dedicated to curious collaborations, fascinating facts and interesting insights. Its aim is to create and share exhibitions, publications, digital content and anything else which adds to the interestingness of life
