Youth Administrator was created for the exhibition Dr Sinclair’s Drawer and co-published by Book Works and Flat Time House, 2014.
About the work:
Dr Sinclair’s Drawer , an exhibition at Flat Time House, London, produced by Book Works and Flat Time House with artist Katrina Palmer following her residency in Summer 2013, and featured work by Katrina Palmer, Francesco Pedraglio, Samuel Hasler and Sarah Tripp. The exhibition comprised of writing, sound recordings, video, sculpture and printed matter, presented in conversation with the physical and symbolic environment of John Latham’s former home and studio. Using language to construct both real and fictional objects and spaces – glitches, obstructions, folds and dead ends – this exhibition featured new work by four artists who use writing and spoken word as their primary media. Utilising language as a controlling device they shape content into diverse forms – sculpture, installation, an essay or an anecdote, video and voice, the self-consuming novel or pulp noir fiction. For each of these artists the use of language as material extends to the performative relation between writer and reader, where the reader is inculcated into the process through either private reading and listening or in live, public performance.
