“Don’t worry about the form”

Botkyrka konsthall’s international artist’s book exhibition is open for contributions – books and texts in various forms – by artists all around the world. This is the second edition of the exhibition Labyrint opening on November 7th 2009 in Sweden.

The title of the exhibition, Writings and Observations, refers to the artistic practice of writing as a way of seeing, a way of altering the world.

This year’s edition will focus on artist’s books, artists’ publications, text art, and various aspects of writing in contemporary art. A research into writing as a way of thinking will be carried out. Does text art change the way we view contemporary literature and writing in media? How are ideas brought forth through text, and how can the way we read an older literary work or history per se, be changed through text? Labyrint will also present works with performative aspects such as film manuscripts of artists, and art in relation to text, music and sound.

Curators: Joanna Sandell and Pia Sandström

The first edition of Labyrint at Botkyrka konsthall in 2006 included artists and art initiatives such as BAS/Bent, Magnus Bärtås, Clementine Deliss, Leif Elggren, Karl Holmqvist, Alexandra Mir, Gil Marco Shani and Dimitry Vilensky. Labyrint 09 – Writings and Observations is open to artists worldwide with a mutual interest; the concept of books and text art, and the practice of writing. The exhibition is open for submissions until December 1st 2009. A catalogue presenting all of the participating works and artists will be produced in 2010.
