Mad Marginal, Cahier #4
I See Words, I Hear Voices
Chantal Pontbriand (Ed.)
Mad Marginal Cahier #4, the massive 400-page reader on Spanish multidisci- plinary artist Dora Garcia, edited by Chantal Pontbriand, brings together major essays by international authors who delve into different threads of Garcia’s research. In her recent exhibitions, Exhausted Books (2013) and Mad Marginal Charts (2014), García uses compulsive writing, collective reading, endless or circular books, graphomania and the parallels and intersections between reading and writing to examine the wellsprings of artistic experience, alter the traditional relationships between artist, work and viewer, and question the daily behavior of the individual through performance, film and discussion. Mad Marginal Cahier, in which Garcia creates an abstract mapping of references central to her idea of marginality as an artistic position, marks this new cycle of works. Contributions by Caroline Andrieux, David Dorenbaum, Dora García, Maria C. Havstam, Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes, Vanessa Ohlraun, Britta Peters, Chantal Pontbriand, Kjetil Røed, Margit Säde, Caroline von Taysen and David Tomas.
