Can you tell us about what’s next / upcoming projects?
To start, I just moved to Japan for a year long residency in Yokohama. I’m excited to be here, to meet new friends, make new work and learn about myself in a completely new environment. I’m looking forward to experiencing new things and seeing how my practice will transform here.
Aside from that I am very pleased to be launching two new editions through my press, Slow Editions this month. I had the pleasure to work with Vanessa Maltese on her new artist book, ‘Several Observations’. The book is made out of thick binder board and is very much an art object when closed. The book features screen printed iterations of a folded and flattened piece of photocopied paper.
Another edition to be released is ‘παρρησία’ by Sophy Naess. Naess was inspired by Mexican soaps that have a specific magical function. In her artist multiple, she created an edition of beautifully hand casted soap using ingredients that encourage the ability to speak courageously and truthfully.
Look out for the new editions at Art Basel (June), New York Art Book Fair (September), Tokyo Art Book Fair (September) as well as several print expo, zine fairs this summer in Toronto.
