As If

New Prints by Brian Hartley Sago
October 26, 2013 – December 20, 2013

As If is a series of intaglio prints that investigates the 151 savants – the artists, scientists, engineers and mathematicians who accompanied Napoleon on his 1798 invasion of Egypt (along with 50,000 soldiers and sailors). As a military expedition it was an utter failure. The entire French fleet was lost in a single battle and a third of the soldiers and sailors died – most from the plague rather than as casualties of battle. The French were expelled from Egypt in less than three years. However what the savants achieved during those three years was longer lasting, and as such is the focus of this solo exhibition by longstanding HP co-op member Brian Hartley Sago.

Imagine a world of mysterious, far-flung places, where time seems to have come to a long-ago standstill. Here, a scrap-wood footbridge precariously spans a wide, flowing river. An old-fashioned cargo ship washes to shore on a deserted beach. Aeroplanes, flying machines, and extraterrestrial spacecraft brush through the clouds. Shanties and shacks cling bravely to cliffs and treetops, and group together on the outskirts of shadowy unnamed cities.
