Andy Hope 1930


“When I saw it fully built in Paris for the first time,
I had a feeling we were all going to become part of
its history […] This blending of metamorphosis and
transformation, of beauty and repulsion, where the
fascination with a ‘monster’ works not as an opposition
between Beauty and the Beast, but as a symbiosis.”
—Andy Hope 1930
The book contains a small-scale replica of the
Summoning sculpture, made with great precision,
and placed in a box that evokes the interior of
an apartment lined with miniature fin de siècle
wallpapers. The clock was discovered in the back
of an old Parisian antique store and transformed
by Andy Hope 1930 into the hybrid creature
‘Summoning’ for the installation Time Banners,
produced and presented by Silverbridge (Royal Book
Lodge), at the Nomadenoase Gallery, Paris, in 2005.
The inside flap of the box contains, under a frame,
an original drawing in Indian ink on gold paper,
made by Andy Hope 1930, different for each copy.
Preparatory sketches are gathered into a notebook
inside a folder decorated with a Summoning logo.
