Linda Carreiro: Inside Out of Words
April 17, 2015 - June 27, 2015
FEATURED ARTIST PROJECT
Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director & Curator, Center for Book Arts
Calling attention to both reading and the material form of a book, Linda Carreiro‘s work provokes questions of what constitutes a book. Employing Jacques Derrida’s concept on “the inside out of language,”, Carreiro underscores that text is a construct, a material that can be formed and re-formed; when removed from the pages of a book, the words can be viewed as unfixed, malleable material. If one tries to firmly position a text one position, the “inside” (or center) always changes its orientation. Derrida’s term is given resonance within the Center for Book Arts gallery, where language is playfully enacted upon and physicalized.
