Inside Out of Words

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.
