Papers, Fictions, Script & Circles
Exploring forms, processes, structures and concerns within contemporary art writing and publishing, Papers, Fictions, Scripts & Circles comprises a series of discussions, print editions and ‘notes’, brought together in a publication.
Joanna Jowett (nee Loveday) and Charlotte A Morgan produced new work in the gallery and remotely; Joanna’s work focused on exploring points of tension between text, diagram and performance or durational act, while Charlotte’s work performed an insertion into the space, exploring spatial or unbound potentials in reading and publishing through sculpture and projection, through which a scene is set and a structure is described.
