Karl Holmqvist – Peep-Hole Sheet #08, A Trip to Tangier . Mousse Publishing

Working mainly with written, spoken, or performed texts, poet and artist Karl Holmqvist experiments here the potential of the ‘empty spread’ of Peep-Hole Sheet. Investigating thus the inner nature of the medium and its open, ambiguous and sometimes contradictory relations with the ‘caravan of signs moving across it’. His A Trip to Tangier is in fact not only a travel in time and space, conveying a strong sense of awareness and freedom, but is also an hypnotic wandering through the possibilities and limits of language. As for many of his publications and videos, Holmqvist opts here for the sharpness of black and white: “I have stuck with black-and-white because it ’s stylish and refers back to text, and to the idea that all of reality could be seen as a type of writing or an act of communication.”
