Malmö Artists’ Book Biennial

Filed under: Exhibitions

In a few weeks (April 20-22) I’ll be taking the danskebåten* down to Malmö to exhibit new and old Hverdag Books publications at the brand new Malmö Artist’s Book Biennial. Malmö is a place very dear to my heart, as I studied abroad there back in 2007. Hope to see old and new faces at the fair. More info here.

For those already in town, the fantastic bookshop at Malmö Konsthall will be displaying a special selection of publications from the biennial starting next week and leading up to the fair, including two of mine.

* the Norway-Denmark “party boat” which also happens to be a very affordable means of transportation.

Riso room / Research trip

Filed under: Exhibitions, Travel

Tomorrow is the opening of a big Riso exhibition at Risotto in Glasgow. I’ve sent in some works (old and new), hopefully they have arrived safe and sound.

In April (23-27), during their week of intensive workshops, I’ll actually be in town with the two other members of the Norsk Risoforening (Norwegian Risograph Association) on a Riso-Research-Trip. Believe it or not, in Norewgian it sounds even better: Riso-Research-Reise (RRR).

Get in touch for coffees, etc. I’ll mostly be hanging around my favorite place (Good Press) and with the international Riso gang.

This week in Oslo

Filed under: Exhibitions, Workshops

Two events I’m involved with are coming up this week, both at educational institutions.

First, on Thursday, February 8: Every shore is a treasury at Westerdals ACT’s library.

As part of Westerdal’s Zero-Waste Day, I’ll be giving a short talk about my Oslofjord project and donating part of my collection of beach plastic to a workshop in collaboration with Seabling.

Then on Saturday, February 10: I’ve contributed a poster to a large group exhibition at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.

The theme of the show is #metoo and my poster is a cheeky presentation of an actual line fed to me (by a member of the administration) while I was a student: “Why can’t you just shut up and be a good girl?” Sigh.

Pamflett Exhibition

Filed under: Exhibitions, Publications, Writing

Photos of my exhibition “Å finne stemmen” at Pamflett that closed last Sunday in Bergen.

When I arrived at the beginning of the residency, the wall was full of nails and clips. Instead of taking them down, I took them in stride and used them as part of the exhibition. Constantly moving things around until my last day in the space, printed layer over layer over layer. What remained was the making of my book.

On the making of this publication

Trial, error
Bittersweet honesty
The limits of a space, the limits of a Risograph
Working with what one has instead of fighting against it
Leaving things to chance
Unexpectedly good outcomes
Sometimes

This paper has been through the machine five times
A misprint, text, text, logos, this poem

Make the form fit the content
Let the metaphors run free

Sensitive, prickly machines must be handled with care

The artist as a designer is perhaps too imaginative
The artist as a printer bemoans her imaginative choices
The artist as a writer is, well, me

There are many ways to tell a story
And it takes many voices

Anonymous
Upside down
Either, or

Residency update

Filed under: Exhibitions, Publications

My book is coming along. Finished all the cutting today in the most beautiful studio.. where my phone also met his death on concrete. Sigh. On the brighter side, not too much rain today.

Photos from Pamflett, tomorrow is collating. Not the easiest task as this book has two different types of inserts. Crying inside thinking of the labor, but it is going to look great! The gallery wall is also shifting and changing.

Come by and have a coffee with me if you’re in town. I’ll be there pretty much from 9.00 – 21.00 . Thanks also to all those who came on Saturday for the intimate artist talk.

Greetings from Pamflett!

Filed under: Exhibitions, Publications

Greetings from Pamflett Self-Publishing Workshop in Bergen!

I’m here on an artist residency for the next two weeks, leaving the last day of the 2017 Bergen Art Book Fair. At the fair I’ll be launching a brand new Riso-printed book called Å Finne Stemmen (Finding One’s Voice). The completion of the book will also culminate in a solo exihibition in the Pamflett space.

NYABF (so close, so far)

Filed under: Exhibitions

Surfing the web at home here in Norway = psyched to peep my zine in this pic snagged from UlisesInstagram. They’re representing Philadelphia which of course includes High Tide‘s beautiful Risograph offerings. Check them out this weekend at table N25 if you find yourself in Queens.

Fotobokfestival Oslo 2017

Filed under: Exhibitions

This year’s Fotobokfestival Oslo opened last Friday at Arbeidersamfunnets Plass. In the square there are three containers. Slightly hidden in one of them (Punk) is a copy of Oslofjord. This book is still not reliably stocked here in Oslo, so if you are a local and want a copy, this is your chance! Last day to visit the containers is September 21.

LIAF

Filed under: Exhibitions

For the next month, two of my publications are a part of Mondo Books‘ installation at the 2017 Lofoten International Art Fesitval (LIAF) in Henningsvær. The books are both on view and for sale, if you find yourself that far north.

Islands Of The Sun, the title of  Mondos’ contribution, is a selection of books and printed matter “organized as a fictional infrastructure, connecting islands, swamps and shifting seaboards and geographies to open critical perspectives on ecologies in flux, both locally and globally”.
