Trinie Dalton recently released her zine anthology, MYTHTYM (Picturebox), a compendium of three handmade books on mythological themes that collect the work of over 50 artists and writers. MIRROR HORROR is the first section in the book, a 100-page treatise on the topic of mirrors in art and cinema. This evening will entail a slide talk on mirrors in art history, focusing on witchcraft and magic, and Dalton will discuss her collection of Giallo horror film stills. For the second half of the event, Dalton will screen short animations by various artists. MYTHTYM will be available for purchase.
Type Tart Cards from Wallpaper Magazine's Sex Issue.
Tart cards are the means by which many London prostitutes advertise their services. Step into almost any central London phone box and you can contemplate up to 80 cards inviting you to be tied, teased, spanked or massaged.
In conjunction with St Bride Library and Type, we asked designers – from students to superstars – to find the tart hiding in every type and create their own graphic numbers. Along with a selection in the magazine, all 450 cards can be viewed here.
I try to visualize how a feeling of touch or taste look like, I abstract objects to understand their relation to one another. Dust particles in the air, blades of grass, sensations registered by hairs on the body - I immerse into configurations that are confusing and transcendental - bodies and ideas that exist in-between being and not-being, inside and outside, certainty and vagueness, reality and theory.
