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”.

It takes time

Filed under: Exhibitions, Writing

There’s an interview (på norsk) up now on the Deichman literature blog where I mostly talk about the (old) Internet and fermentation. One week left to catch my show in Grünerløkka!
