Art Writing

COPY Charts
Developed through a series of field trips to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Charts is an ambiguous guide; an unreliable field survey, a diversion or a shifted cartography for imaginary wandering. Works respond to, relate to, tangent from, map, chart, obscure and abstract the site, interwoven with fictions, fragments of histories, critical ideas, propositions and recollections.

Published in 2009, RITE is the result of a nine month collaboration with Critical Communities, a New Work Network and Open Dialogues project exploring the practice of critical writing on and as new work (interdisciplinary and live art).
RITE is a collection that brings together 19 original texts by UK based art writers that enact expanded acts of criticism, question the essay form, use language as material and attempt to work the different ways that writing can be on or about new work.
