folio & Sleeperhold Publications @ Motto Berlin.25.07.2014.

Please join us for the Berlin launch of folio issue two and interim project ‘Image / Object’ by artist Ella McCartney.

Issue two is guest edited by Antwerp based Ward Heirwegh and features artists Phil Baber, Kit Craig, Zoe Giabouldaki and Melike Kara. The issue is constructed around Samuel Beckett’s short play ‘Come and Go’ and includes an A2 insert poster by either Kit Craig or Melike Kara. Twenty limited edition copies contain a specially commissioned object by Kit Craig and the two artists’ posters.

Guest-editor Ward Heirwegh will also be showing publications from his experimental publication platform Sleeperhold Publications.

London based artist Ella McCartney’s ‘Image / Object’ project moves between the online space of folio’s website and the printed object, available to see at the launch.

Friday 25 July, 19.00 start

distracted-reader #2 Michael Parr and Blaine Western. split/fountain.

A ridge, a section, an existing boundary, additions, a removed partition. A floor; concrete (where possible). 160 pages; includes 10 tipped-in colour plates. With essays by Michelle Menzies, Lance Pearce, and Henry Babbage.

Parr and Western segue a photographic essay on the ruinous state of Barton Gillespie’s modernist house in Westemere into photographs of mutely eloquent architectural and landscape fragments taken in Los Angeles and Mexico. Menzies’ essay reads the Barton Gillespie house as a figure of rapport between people, topography and climate. Pearce considers the itinerancy and conceptual mobility of Parr and Western’s practice. Babbage reflects on the different audiences that Parr and Western’s temporary, quasi-architectural spaces create, and the way the spaces operate as platforms for occupancy and performance.

distracted-reader #1 Mixtures: Xin Cheng and Allan Smith. split/fountain.

156 pages with drawings, photographs and texts by Xin Cheng, and drawings, photographs and texts by Allan Smith.

The title Mixtures comes from a 2011 Xin Cheng exhibition; in this publication Cheng mixes memories of a Chinese childhood with recipes for healthy eating, photographed pages of anthropology texts showing Mongolian Yurts, and knitted socks from Scandinavia, images of ingenious low-tech merchandising stands in Cambodia, drawings of stone walls, and a bread igloo.

Smith writes about the copiousness and fabricational inventiveness of Cheng’s practice, and about the accumulative materiality in the collages and architectural practice of ex-pat architect M.K. Smith.

Allan Smith’s ‘un-illustrations’ set old school ink drawing and comic-book sequencing to work on the textured ‘push and pressure’ of a densely textured world.

Charlotte Moth. Serralves.

Charlotte Moth (Carshalton, UK, 1978) has created over the past 10 years a body of work that is essentially photographic but emerges primarily through the experience of sculpture, architecture and cinema. For the 2011 edition of the Sonae/Serralves Project that took place at the Instituto Araújo Porto, the artist produced a film and presented an installation where she transformed the pages of this book into a ‘sculpture’. This artist book is composed of 50 photographic sheets and a brochure with texts by Ricardo Nicolau (exhibition curator), Sean Dower (artist) and Quinn Latimer (writer and art critic).
