In An(n)us Mirabilis, Ryan McGinness wittily subverts the title of Einstein’s pivotal publication with abject humour. Spiralling from a central ‘orifice’, McGinness’s scrivenery exudes a hypnotic quality as flourishing interlaced scripts create a beaconing pattern in their subtle shift of colour. Replicating the corporeal reference of hair and visualising the virtual field of information, McGinness’s An(n)us Mirabilis seduces with its graphic perfection. Expanding in a field of weightlessness and disorientation, An(n)us Miraibilis frames desire and detachment as an aperture into the infinite.
