Richard McGuire’s Here constitutes a radical reinvention of the comic language. The story does not unfold in a linear fashion (where panels read from left to right) but rather ‘inwardly’ – that is, into the depths of a room. Here is the portrait of a single room and overlapping moments in time within it: each panel acts as a window into stories spanning several centuries. Preliminary publication of the first six (b/w) pages of the book already brought the New York artist wide acclaim and the completed project (a 300-page colour book) was published in 2014. The exhibition provides insights into the creative process and transforms McGuire’s visual play on time into the digital.
