Voyage boxed: sea journeys, island hopping & trans-oceanic concepts
Our new display at ECA Library features Voyage boxed: sea journeys, island hopping & trans-oceanic concepts, curated by Imi Maufe and Rona Rangsch, Künstlerhaus Dortmund, c.2014.
This beautiful Artists’ Book consists of a collection of art works and an exhibition catalogue issued in a square box. The collection of artworks consist primarily of printed material on paper, a combination of single sheets and booklets, one wooden board printed in colour with string with a small sheet folded concertina style attached, plus a compact disc of ocean wave sounds. The artworks are either 15 x 15 cm, or folded to approximately the same size. Leaves of clear wax paper are interspersed between each work. The artworks are variously photographs, collages, drawings and poetry.
The box also includes one crumpled corner of a map of Shetland (20 x 20 cm), crumpled tissue paper, an unbleached fabric ribbon and a small ceramic egg, in a cloth bag with drawstring.
The 20 artists collaborating in this work included Nancy Campbell, David Faithfull, Christine Morrison and Ian Stephen.
Accompanying CD: Sea of curves, by Jeff Talman, with researchers Matt Fowler and James Traer.
Published in a signed and numbered edition of 50 copies.
ECA Library’s copy is number 42.
