“She, the grid system is aware only of her corners, not of her straight lines. She perceives her own space and those persons who traverse her space as flat entities moving swiftly and without substance.” – Maria Fusco.

The artist book New Reproductions, published in conjunction with David Maljković’s exhibition at CAC Vilnius, is a dense object jn which the textual contributions function as poetic and fictional response to the artist’s collaged 48 images. Here, Maljković provides a certain utilitarian take on re-reading, remembering, incompleteness, and exhaustion as artistic positions in order to assemble filiations between works separated by time span and by his changing ideas.

This second YEAR is still an almanac, a choral book revealing behind the stage. Seasons are information. Hey, look at what has been done, should be, will be or never be. This issue is like talking with images. You can connect one page to another. Text can be spare, descriptive or exhaustingly disruptive. What have you done means what it will be. We asked people about what’s in their mind from the past or for the future and that creates an all present. Last time, we talked about no future, now we are no present. YEAR is still a chain reaction, organizing its content in the form of sequences. YEAR is still an experimental constellation.
The time of manifestos and propaganda is back! From the everyday or larger issues of sociability and historicity. It takes the shape of a collage of disparate sources in time and place. Advertisement, propaganda and manifestos are the ultimate forms for abstraction and engrained subjectivity like space from outer space. Porn and insults, unreal kind of novellas, advertisement as public space, again, opposed to archives, distinction opposed to evaluation, again, narrative to order, cool to distance, taste to energy, again, beauty to sense, sense to idea, idea to experience, experience to life and life to style and style to knowledge and knowledge to power and power to all perversive shit. Still.
As an author use your imagination to be radical, literal and obscene!
As a reader use your intellect and senses to be radical, metaphorical and obscene!

PARROT. Karl Larsson.
Edited by Kim West.
Published by Paraguay Press.
Design by Pascal Prosek.
September 2010. English.
Edition of 1000
11 x 18,4 cm, 80 pages, b/w, softcover

Parrot is the third book written by Swedish artist Karl Larsson, whose work consistently explores language, writing, and narrative in relation to historical and contemporary experiments in literature and art. Parrot originates from a research conducted by the artist on the work of Marcel Broodthaers, who famously withdrew from poetry and developed a fascination for birds — as in the famous piece from 1976 Ne dites pas que je ne l’ai pas dit.

Parrot by Karl Larsson is a 80-pages long poetical essay – or maybe an analytical piece of poetry – about the repetition, the dissemination, and the crystallization of words and their meanings. It is a book about bodies, containers, and documents. It harbors, generates and repeats poetical statements. A parrot is a bird whose body is inhabited by others: it mimicks their language and creates comical and uncanny resemblances. It is a very beautiful bird.

Karl Larsson – Parrot was produced in conjunction with the exhibition “Parrot” Marcel Broodthaers and Karl Larsson, at Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm, Sept-Oct 2010.
