Scriptings#46 A catalogue, in any case unreasoned and incomplete (2016)
Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, VOX, SBC Gallery, Montreal
From the publication:
For Scriptings#46 — the first edition of the Scriptings series to be published on Turtle Island — Berlin-based artist Achim Lengerer has been commissioned to publish a form of printed matter for Putting Rehearsals to the Test. A temporary collective of artists and designers gathered for two weeks at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery. Without knowledge of the curated artworks, the artists-as-editors worked with the exhibiting artists' preliminary research and work-in-process material as a visual script. Prints of sketches, source imagery, text excerpts, and video stills directed the collective through various rehearsals: layouts, assemblages, performances, and cinematic sequences repeated and altered in the gallery space. Scriptings#46 is presented as 30 variations, 10 corresponding to each gallery. If the publication approaches the form of a catalogue, it is in any case unreasoned and incomplete.
