Description

Edited by João Ribas. Foreword by Jane Farver.

Artist and writer Frances Stark (born 1967) addresses the doubts and anxieties of creative labor, in self-portraits that she elaborates into cross-disciplinary explorations of language as both subject matter and material. The digressive style that typifies her writing is echoed in the experience of her installations, in which themes emerge across citations from pop music and literature. Her works, often hand drawn, are executed with a vulnerability and fluency of composition that affirms the volume’s title. This anthology offers a selection of the artist’s writings from 1997 to 2006.
