Traversals.  Anna-Sophie Springer / K.Verlag Press

TRAVERSALS is based on a series of conceptual interviews with Dora Garcia, Chris Kraus, Mark von Schlegell, Charles Stankievech, and Jacob Wren originally produced for an installation in an art gallery. As a re-issue of these texts the forthcoming publication continues K.’s interest in the book-as-exhibition. Each invited contributor has found a unique way to explore the hybrid spaces between genres and art forms, and the discussions focus especially on the role and relationship between visual art and writing. While the interview process was rather formalised––with one set of five identical questions posed to each person in the first round, and then five individual questions asked in a second round in response to the first five answers––the texts themselves delight through a personal tone and a great openness for both idiosyncratic trajectories and unexpected trasversals between the five different chapters.

The material was originally produced for the piece TRAVERSALS (With Ladder) shown in the exhibition 5x5Castelló2011 at Espai d’Art Contemporani de Castelló, Castelló, Spain (8 July – 18 September 2011).

On the occasion of 5×5 the interviews were pinned to the wall in a grid while a sliding library ladder allowed for a playfully embodied reading experience. The spatialised format revealed the parallels in the conversations as well as their differences – particularly as the conversations evolve.

Ultimate Lezcation. Yuri Manabe.

I was looking for a scenery
experience
connected with my fantasy world
place that we want
still now and now
its ongoing
and somewhere
suddenly
around corner
If I want to get out the room
maybe something
you will do and meet and fuck

Yasei no Shikou. Yuri Manabe.

That Title comes from the work of Claude Levi-Strauss “La Pensee Sauvage”. I haven’t read it, but thinking about wild and structure in nature as neutral place often where man did not make and its surrounding and margin.
