e·mer·gence … to become visible

Emergence

@ 16th International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair, Leeds
 Friday 8 March – Saturday 9 March 2013

  • Acquired by the Tate Library Collection, London
  • Selected for KALEID 2013 curated exhibition by an international jury from MoMA Library, USA, V&A Museum, UK and Frans Masereel Centrum, Belgium

e·mer·gence I and e·mer·gence II first exhibited with AMBruno artist book collective in Leeds (March 2013). Since then they have been shown at Arnolfini in Bristol (April 2013) and Baltic in Newcastle (June 2013). Inspired by observing star formations and John Latham’s ‘least event’ structure, and using elements of control and chance, the drawings express the shortest time in which I can create a mark – the second – the base unit of time. Selecting 16, a random number to determine the quantity of drawings, duration, process and format, instigated the chance element, while paradoxically creating a predetermined framework.
Each 16 leaves (32 pages); 16 x 16 cm; 16 ink drawings; indigo print; edition of 32; produced by Book Works, London
