Darren Bader: Scott Mendes’s Pleonasm
Darren Bader's Scott Mendes's Pleonasm is the second volume in the Scott Mendes comic book trilogy. Repurposing the "Mendesian" universe Bader originally conceived for the 2019 Venice Biennale, Pleonasm transports the reader to: an anonymous future, the belly of a whale, present day Manhattan, and somewhere near Jupiter. In keeping with Bader's general oeuvre, the reader will encounter a variety of oddities, meditations, and recontextualizations. The comic book also features 5 original advertisements.
Pleonasm was preceded by Scott Vendes's Menice (2019) and will be followed by Scott Mendes's Endive & Lace (2022).
