Product Description

In the summer of 2010, artist Emanuel Almborg and a group of eleven people, strangers of varying ages and backgrounds, traveled together to a small island off the coast of Sweden. Their mission was to build a wooden structure over the course of their stay on the island without speaking and without any plan or blueprint.

The book features the fieldnotes and photographs of anthropologist Jacinta Emelia Cosas, who was invited to the island for 24 hours. Her notes, both observational and speculative, are written in an attempt to understand the nature and dynamic of the group and touch on larger questions about the relationship between language and community.

Nothing Is Left to Tell is edited by Jeff Kinkle and Emanuel Almborg and was inspired by their research into an experimental building project in Hackney, London, investigated in Andperseand’s previous publication The Rest Is Silence.

Jacinta Emilia Cosas is a Associate Professor at Buenos Aires University. Her doctoral thesis on the whistle language of the island La Gomera will be published in Argentina in winter 2012.

Nothing Is Left to Tell is published by Andperseand, an art book publisher based in Stockholm, Sweden, set up by design studio Konst & Teknik, theorist Jeff Kinkle and artist Emanuel Almborg in 2009. Previous titles include the sold out The Rest is Silence by Emanuel Almborg and Trace a Face by Konst & Teknik and Jonathan Puckey.
