The first element acknowledges the research part of the residency
and brings together flat work by the artist including graphic designs,
applied work and architectural projects alongside varied posters
and prints. This material will be edited, adjusted and printed in
Kitakyushu. The exhibition will be mirrored in a book provisionally
titled "The Book
of the 3rd of June".
At the same time as compiling and editing the graphic material, work
will begin on a new text. The potential title of the previewed work
is "Literally No Place" which sets out to examine shifting
notions of conscience in a constantly mutating socio-economic environment.
Bringing together Thomas More, B. F. Skinner, S. J. Perelman, Louis
Althusser and others, "Literally No Place" will be outlined
and introduced as an appendix to the book that accompanies this exhibition
and will be developed further as an extended lecture / production
during the project "Indiscipline," curated by Barbara van
der Linden and Jens Hoffmann at the Musée des Beaux Arts in Brussels
later this year." - Liam Gillick
