Writing Over

Andreasen, Kasper

Regular price €23,00

Writing Over is a drawing atlas which focuses on the relationship between the gestures of drawing, writing and map-making. The book serves as companion volume to the installation which was shown in 2012 at Netwerk in Aalst. The drawings which are partly derived from a personal and collective history are rendered in different types of landscapes and maps. These are accompanied by an 'Atlas Archive'; a study of surfaces used in this cartographic process — sketches, stamps, media images, engraving plates, notations and a short story by Louis Lüthi, entitled 'Unalaska Alaska'.”

Using various (archive) materials the artist explores such concepts as dimensionality, materiality, space and representation, by drawing a line over a blank space one can create many different, yet similar things: a word, an image, or the contours of a continent; includes a short story specially written for this book by Louis Lüthi, who is also responsible for the text and book design.
