Jon Bywater, Louise Menzies and Marnie Slater, Die Toilette (The Social Life of the Book #5) (after Chris Kraus) *Second-hand

Regular price £5.00GBP

‘Die Toilette is an assemblage of text fragments taken from different books by LA-based writer Chris Kraus, conceived and annotated by artists and writers Jon Bywater, Louise Menzies and Marnie Slater. By reading through Kraus’s texts looking for traces of New Zealand, where she grew up, the three Kiwis question the representation of the distant; how it is embodied by characters, situations, language, and in the writing/reading dynamics Kraus creates. The beach, affection and love relationships, the role of the city, intense relations with wildlife – all this and more is at stake in this amazing cut-up.’
