EDITED BY SHARON KIVLAND, CURATED BY EMMA BOLLAND AND SHARON KIVLAND
The Editions is an annual publishing project, undertaken by past and present M.A., M.F.A., and Ph.D. students in Fine Art, Sheffield Hallam University, working with number of constraints.
In 2015–16, over several months, the participants in The Editions III prepared their novels, following Roland Barthes, thinking about how to produce a book that while unwritten is described or figured, given form. The Editions III is the trial of writing. Material, without which the books would not be possible or which is constructed after the fact, is collected and displayed: the parts and processes of writing as terms of reference.
The participating artists in The Editions III have each produced a book in response to Roland Barthes’ text The Preparation for the Novel. This exhibition aims to recreate the artist’s /author’s moment of production, bringing together fifteen sets of preparatory material for these books – notes, drafts, crumpled sheets of paper, reference books, Post-Its, and other ephemera. Displayed as individual writing desks in the Tetley’s Boardroom, the installation will be activated by exhibiting artists taking turns to sit at their desks, writing, idling, or otherwise engaged.
