Mercado Livre
Wisrah Villefort

Goswell Road - 12.00€ -

Wisrah Villefort’s overarching research focuses on the nonhuman, digital matter, synthetic polymers, prosthetics and their markets.

The ongoing hypermedia work Mercado Livre - https://www.instagram.com/mercado__livre/
 - begun in 2017, is dependent on the viewer performing online, accessing the platform via Instagram. Villefort collects images from online marketplaces based in the Global South, outside of the West, including AliExpress (China) and Mercado Livre (Argentina) for the content. Mercado Livre, besides being the title of the work and the platform, is also the term for the neoliberal principle of the “free market”, in which goods’ prices supposedly regulate themselves.

This book accompanies his exhibition, THE MOUTH OF THE GIFTED HORSE, dissecting Mercado Livre through the eyes of the show, focussing on inter-species relationships and non-human prosthetics, featuring a text written by Villefort during his recent research residency at Pivô, São Paulo, entitled 'Notes on Masks, Gloves and Muzzles: Beyond the Fault of Epimetheus'.

SNUFF IT
Goswell Road

Goswell Road - 20.00€ -

In June 1994, the Church of Euthanasia published the first issue of SNUFF IT subtitled 'The Quarterly Journal of The Church of Euthanasia'. On the back cover was a simple claim: "Get six issues of Snuff It for only ten dollars!" though, to this day, the CoE has only produced five issues. What SNUFF IT lacks in punctuality is more than made up for its content. The first four issues were produced between 1994 and 1997, the period when the dada actions of CoE were at their peak. ISSUE #5 had to wait over 20 years to see the light of day, but the CoE capitalised on this, giving us a taste of what it means to them to be Post-Antihuman. 

Gathered here for the first time are all five issues of SNUFF IT and some closing words from the Reverend Chris Korda on the evolution of the CoE during its 27 years of existence.

Farewell Youth: An Archive 1996-2019
Thomas Cap de Ville

Goswell Road - 20.00€ -

Cap de Ville was a child of the nineties and noughties. The extracts from the works contained in this volume are a personal testament to this time, to his time. He refers to these book-objects as 'psychophores': they contain hair, theeth and bodily fluids, alongside collected objects, talismans, detritus, and personal photographs, all conserved in transparent adhesive tape. His archive covers the years from 1996-2019 (the year the book-objects were assembled) without clear indicators of time passing or time stamps. It remains defiantly out of time.

I. about
rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
