a journey a bit too obscure
With references to artists like T.S. Eliot, McCarthy, Munari, Burroughs, Beckett, and Jean Genet, the publication combines artworks and poetry through a silent and indirect dialogue. Time participated as well: 2 years of moving between different cities across Europe, of collecting leftovers of images and texts. Combining and reducing to the essential. Later, a copy machine in a printing shop transformed the original artworks directly into black and white prints, while words have been carefully handfolded or ripped off to become poem-objects. Each copy is wrapped in a handmade folder, with a distinguished drawing on the front. A photolith film for silk print marks the beginning of the publication. The time dedicated to create and assemble every single copy is an important part of the project – emphasizing the opposition to the modern need of fast production. The screw binding gives the reader the freedom to rearrange the order, to redesign and reshape.
