Finally finished my edition of 16 books, 11 or which will be sent of round the US and UK later this year as part of the Pulp Atlas Exhibition. Each book in the series is entitled ‘Littoral Drift’ and features two hand embossed paper slips of Progeo map paper, housed in a card sleeve. Once again the work explores the idea of erosion/accretion, this time picking out Special Areas of Conservation or Sites of Special Scientific Interest between two points on the coast.
I’ll be taking part in PULP ATLAS this Autumn, a series of artist book exhibitions curated by Christopher Kardambikis. I am currently looking for possible venues to host the Suffolk leg of the tour, so please get in touch if you think you may have a suitable non-gallery venue and would like discuss playing host to the works.“PULP ATLAS is a series of artist book exhibitions featuring the work of 12 artists experimenting with the book form. Each artist will have produced an edition of 12 artist books or zines, allowing for 12 exhibitions to happen simultaneously in different cities during the Fall of 2014. PULP ATLAS explores the contemporary book form as well as the cultural borders surrounding alternative exhibition spaces. Artist books and zines occupy a unique territory: inherently legible even while experimental, they are precious and disposable, able to be viewed in public but read as an incredibly personal experience. Participating venues in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia as well as Toronto, Canada, Suffolk, England and Edinburgh, Scotland will be announced this summer. An exhibition blog and website will be documenting the concurrent events.”
