Simon Evans: Genius

20:20, 02 - 27 Aug

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans's. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm... 'Super-sharp wit' (Time Out). 'Wields language like a rapier' (Scotsman). 'Please clap' (Jeb Bush).
