‘off the s{h}elf ‘ – My Sketchbook.

Posted on Updated on

I shall be exhibiting one of my sketchbooks into the ‘Off The Shelf’ exhibition:

http://offdshelf.wordpress.com/

‘Off the shelf: the self and subjectivity in the artist’s book’ is an exhibition dedicated to various expressions of subjectivity in artist’s publications. It aims to bring together contributions from a variety of formats and editions that consider the self in the artist’s book.

The exhibition will focus on the contemporary publications and welcomes submissions from a wide range of genres, including: handmade books, object-books, sculptural books, altered books, installation books, photobooks, photozines, print-on-demand books, zines, serial editions (artists’ magazines), multimedia books and ebooks. Potential topics might include, but are not limited to:

  • Self-portraits as self-analysis
  • Archival practices of the self
  • Family albums and personal narratives
  • Gender and feminist narratives
  • Queer identities
  • Auto-biography and fictional biographies
  • Sexualities and space
  • Performance of the self
  • Travel book and diasporic strategies’

My sketchbooks are an integral part of the thought and development process of my work, I carry a sketchbook everywhere and always re-use ideas.

The book which I have submitted has been continued with for several years, holding original drawings of my Fashion Dolls to gallery sketches/research drawings and written technical notes and ideas.

It really is a personal insight into my thought process and where it all comes from.

Private view: Friday December 7 18:00-21:00

Open: Saturday 8th–Sunday 9th December 12:00-18:00
