Poster Publication 2004
For the fourth edition of Slimvolume Poster Publication,
fifteen artists have selected an artist each to produce an
edition of prints. The collaborators,
who are from Germany, Sweden,
the US and the UK, utilise
a mixture of participatory,
language or literary based practices,
and have taken things in a direction that at once compromises
and delegates the existing curatorial and artistic responsibility
of the project. The resulting
publication represents an unlikely chain of events that is
generated by the similarities,
differences and collaborative approaches defined by the prints
or posters within it.
An essential part of the annual publishing project is its
method of distribution, which
operates through the nomination of copies of the publication
to individuals and collections in the UK and abroad.
The accumulation of each contributor's chosen recipient produces
a community of receivers, or
an extended family tree, which
this year includes artists,
friends, and museums.
As a loose bound edition, the
publication exists in multiple contexts -
the works are placed in the gallery,
the street, the archive,
on the bookshelf, and can be
discarded or disseminated further once received.
The recipient of each package is free to separate the works
or keep them as a complete set.
A quantity of the numbered and signed copies of the publication
will be split, with the component
parts installed at sites in London and Norwich.
In its form at ®edux,
the works will be presented as a traditional exhibition,
with each print framed and mounted on the wall.
The launch will enable visitors to witness the project within
the research space on London's Commercial Street,
while recipients will be able to collect their copies on the
night. The exhibition will
run during December and provide the opportunity for visitors
to see the edition in this form for a limited period.
An exhibition guide detailing each work will accompany the
publication's exhibition. Slimvolume
was initiated at the end of 2000 to provide an open space
for artists to expand their practice within a tight collective
curatorial framework. It is
a not for profit organisation /
The Exhibition tours to Outpost,
10b Wensum Street, Norwich
NR3 1HR, 2 to 20 February 2005.
