A more recent edition : Warande (2013)
Mark Manders‘ ‘Newspaper’ series is an ongoing series of printed newspaper editions often free for the public to take home and available only during his exhibitions.
Using a nonsensical combination of English words, their text creates a pretense of legibility that dissolves upon closer inspection.
Simon Fujiwara, ‘Desk job’ (2009)
“A typewriter sits in the middle of a desk surrounded by a litter of screwed up paper, notes typed on file cards, and reference photographs of architectural details, erotic sculpture and gay pornography. Copies of the one-page synopsis of the novel are stacked on the desk, setting the fictional parameters as it describes the novelist’s thwarted attempts to write, his ultimate seclusion and his indulgence in clandestine sexual activities inspired by and in defilation of the building’s sleek Modernist architecture. The synopsis ends with the first line of the novel: ‘A novelist is living in an exquisitely crafted modernist house …’, a line we see typed on the sheet of paper in the typewriter.” (Kirsty Bell in Frieze Magazine, Issue 132, June–August 2010)
