Texts not necessarily meant to be viewed as art
2016 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic) [Artistic work]
Texts Not Necessarily Meant to be Viewed as Art explores how contemporary artists use text in their creative processes. The project and publication focuses on artists' writing and examines the thoughts, ideas, and techniques that structure an artwork. The publication features thirty Nordic and international contemporary artists and writers that have contributed examples of how text informs their processes. Texts Not Necessarily Meant to be Viewed as Art is a form of sourcebook for artistic writing, which provides deeper insight into artistic writing in general, and grants public access to otherwise closed rooms: artists’ physical and virtual notebooks, text documents, folders and drawers. These rooms contain unpolished, often unfinished artists’ writing, and illuminate what’s sometimes lost in the editing process. The pages of the publication contain good and bad ideas, and sketches for work both finished and unfinished (perhaps forgotten or discarded). It presents a snapshot of the stage in the artistic process when the work has not yet landed in its final form and still is in motion. Participating artists' and writers include, amongst others, Cory Archangel, Emily Wardill, Darren Bader, Lucie Fontaine, Kenneth Goldsmith, Tamara Henderson, Hanne Lippard, Tris Vonna Michel, Mara Lee Gerden, Magnus Bärtås and Audun Mortensen.
