Outside the Palace of Me

Par Shary Boyle

In Outside the Palace of Me, internationally renowned Canadian multidisciplinary artist Shary Boyle offers a powerful look at how we see and imagine ourselves and each other. This book, based on the touring museum exhibition of the same name, reflects on global and individual struggles of identity to wonder at the possibilities of a just, joyous, and collective future. Presenting masterful ceramics and watercolours as well as animatronics of dizzying proportions and a dazzling spectrum of handcraft, Boyle has created a visionary new project merging the languages of carnival, theatre, and the art museum, inviting readers to reflect on their roles in, and responses to, the most urgent questions of our time.

Shary Boyle (b.1972) lives and works in Toronto. Her practice considers the social history of ceramic figurines, animist mythologies, and folk art forms. Deeply imaginative and highly crafted, Boyle’s works are activated through collaboration and mentorship. In 2013 she represented Canada at the 55th Venice Biennale.
