Press Release 
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, writers, curators, theorists, musicians, non-artist 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 / project.

The Exhibition tours to Outpost, 10b Wensum Street, Norwich NR3 1HR, 2 to 20 February 2005.
