The Registry of Promise / Chris Sharp (Editor)

Roma Publication 255

Over the course of a year, The Registry of Promise consisted of four interrelated exhibitions, which are represented as chapters in this book. In these chapters, Chris Sharp reflects on our increasingly fraught relationship with what the future may or may not hold, and the work engages with and plays upon the various readings and mutability of “promise”, along with the inevitability of what may come, whether positive or negative. Such polyvalence is particularly topical, as we have shifted from the anthropocentric promise of modernity to a negative faith in the post-human. Richly illustrated with works and installation views, and an archive of previously published articles by Chris Sharp.
