Launch__Montez Press Interjection Calendar 005

We are celebrating the launch of Montez Press fifth edition of The Interjection Calendar with an evening of readings and performances from, Rene Matić, Bella Milroy, sabrina soyer, Lisa Robertson and Claudia Pagès. 

For the Interjection Calendar, each month montez press invites an artist, a writer, a poet or a doer of some sorts to say things — to share their work in various and unexpected ways. There are no rules.

Montez Press invites 12 people, as the Gregorian Calendar has 12 months. There are various systems of counting months and years, but one thing all calendars have in common: they are oriented towards something bigger than ourselves. The course of celestial bodies can be mirrored in the microcosms of our own corporeal systems — it takes a moment of calm to recognize the links between the large and the small. 

All 12 pieces have introspection and reflection in common. They are a subjective overview of writing in the expanded field of contemporary art and writing in the year 2019, and primarily it is up to you as their reader to discover the parallels and links between them. This is the Interjection Calendar 2019, the fifth collection in this series. Don’t be surprised if next year we invite another 12 contributors.

Rene Matić is an artist currently studying and working in London. Her work explores the immeasurable dimensions of Blackness through the lens of her own personal experiences as a queer Black womxn living in the diaspora. In doing so, Matić aims to expose, combat and question the power relations that pervade the art world and society more widely.

Bella Milroy is an artist who lives in her hometown of Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Her work explores how we touch and make contact with the world around us, with the hand-held being of particular significance. Using her personal perspective as a framework for a wider reflection of contemporary living, she makes work about making work (and being disabled) and not being able to make work (and being disabled).

sabrina soyer is a writer and artist currently living in Paris. Her work involves many collaborations inside queer communities of artists and writers in the city. She is part of The Cheapest University.

Lisa Robertson is a Canadian poet and essayist living in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region of France. Recent publications: Proverbs of a She-Dandy (Belkin Gallery, Vancouver) and 3 Summers (Coach House, Toronto).

Claudia Pagès lives and works in Barcelona. Pagès works with text, publishing it through printed matter, installations and sonic readings. She normally works in specific contexts, but her focus of research and interests has been on language, talkable text and forms of contemporary distribution and circulation where labor and biopolitics are inter- laced, working on living labour and its performative aspects and dead labour in relation to circulation.

Montez Press is an artist run publishing house and radio station based out of London, New York and Hamburg. Find PDF's of the latest contributions on https://www.montezpress.com/catalogue/interjection-calendar/.

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 and workshops. rile* is the base word for silence in Laadan, a feminist constructed langauge developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. Laadan was designed specifically to determine if development of a language aimed at expressing the views of women would shape a culture; a subsidiary hypothesis was that Western natural languages may be better suited forexpressing the views of men than women. 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 male-centered language's limitations on women, who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
