Something that’s been in my mind since my ‘Going Solo’ residency is how to (re)present walks, and if one should. Sometimes I think the best artistic practice around walking is simply taking people on a walk. I know Heimo Lattner and Martin Nachbar might agree… Still, as a mark maker at heart, even if I’m mostly doing that digitally these days, it still niggles at me.
And so it is that I’m packing some large, folded sheets of Accademia paper for my trip with Ruby to the last of the Sideways Festival in Zutendaal, Belgium this weekend. I’m interested in the marks they are going to accrue as we transport them about and its already started with the scars the paper bears from its initial trip from our studio to home.
It’s also the last week of Verortete Verlangen, the group show we’re in at the Alte Feuerwache, Friedrichshain and so Pia Linz and Zuzanna Skiba’s work is in my mind.
