This issue is dedicated to 'Materializzazione del Linguaggio', a 1978 Venice Biennale exhibition curated by Mirella Bentivoglio. The exhibition comprised of work by over eighty women artists working in a huge range of media, but united in their interrogation of text, voice and language. After the smashing hit of their Hervé Guibert No.1 issue, Tinted Window continues its focus on a single subject with issue No.2: Verbivocovisual. In No.2, Tinted Window brings much of this work back to the fore where many artists have slipped into the footnotes of an exciting period in art history. But much beyond our focus on this iconic exhibition, the issue features new essays and art projects by some of the best artists working with text, voice and poetry today. No.2 features new commissions, translations and reprints from: Holly Antrum, Jeremy Atherton Lin, Mirella Bentivoglio, Angela Bianchini, Daniela Cascella, Anne Carson, Paula Claire, Paul Clinton, William Cobbing, Constance DeJong, Karen Di Franco, Sholto Dobie, Gustavo Grandal Montero, Katalin Ladik, Daisy Lafarge, Rosanna Mclaughlin, Silvia Mejía, Hannah Regal, Giovanna Sandri and Sue Tompkins.
No.1 explores the life and work of the writer, photographer and filmmaker Hervé Guibert. There is a travelogue to Greece in search of a portrait; reminiscences from those that knew him well or otherwise; first-time English translations of his work; a fine eye for his photographs; writing that deftly traces his last moments. Featuring Andrew Durbin, Louis Fratino, Hervé Guibert, Bruce Hainley, Brigitte Ollier, John Douglas Millar and Jeffrey Zuckerman.
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.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 19h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.
