Artist Statement

Read With Me. Extending from the experimental book project ‘Read to Me’, this book is the result of: a performative drawing event, readings by a psychometric reader, collages made during lockdown and words assembled from the dissected readings. It was made in tribute to Susan Hiller’s Sisters of Menon (Coracle Press for Gimpel Fils, 1983), and references the size and cover of the original book. Produced via a remote residency at the London Centre for
Book Arts, UK, 2022. Edition of 60, 48 pages, 250 x 180 mm, interior four-colour risograph printed by Esther McManus on Redeem 130gsm recycled paper, relief printed (photopolymer plate) silver ink endpapers and cover, letterpress printed title plate.
