Love Your Parasites (Baroque Edition)

Love Your Parasites (Baroque Edition) is a book I worked on that is edited by British artist Camilla Wills and published by Paraguay Press, Paris. I contributed a text to the editorial titled 'Add-on: stuff that sticks' (which you can see/read in pictures at bottom of this post).

Launched at South London Gallery on 2 May 2015, with a forthcoming launch in Paris from 19:00 at castillo/corrales on Friday 19 June 2015 (with readings by Justin Lieberman, Laetitia Paviani, Sabrina Soyer and Eleanor Weber & Camilla Wills), this book contains contributions by the following artists:

Morgan Courtois
Stanya Kahn
Allison Katz
KAYA (Kerstin Brätsch and Debo Eilers)
Rachel Koolen
Justin Lieberman
France-Lise McGurn
Jamie Partridge
Laetitia Paviani
Valerie Snobeck
Amelie von Wulffen

As the blurb describes: 'Love Your Parasites is a picture book that recognizes the “co-suffering parasite” through the lens of the motif in different art practices. Motif is taken to be a charged shape that communicates a desire. A form that is clung to, repeated and ascribed significance, that sticks around for a long period of time: scab, bruise, receptor. In this case contamination is renewal, a recurrence without security. Circulation is an intoxicated survival ...'

Designed by Ben Weaver and printed to an edition of 500, for 20€ get your hands on one of these beautiful things, to reference, to open up, and to keep generating heat.
