Collection of, 2014
‘Collection of’ is SPUR’s second publication, the publication takes the form of a series of printed artist postcard editions, a small text based zine exploring the notion of image as text/text as image and an audio cassette of diverse local musicians to compliment the visual works.
The artist editions look to place local and international artworks and artists alongside each other in a considered but playful manner whilst the zine features short artist interviews and image/text based works beginning SPUR’s exploration of text as image/image as text using works created by the artists of the editions series.
The publication is a limited, hand numbered run of only 50 hand crafted copies. The cassette features diverse northern based bands including Super Luxury and The Horn The Hunt, plus a one off exclusive song by Manchester band of the moment, Temple Songs, specially written and recorded for this release only.
‘Collection of’ launched at Village Bookstore & Gallery on the 6 of February 2014, coinciding with the opening of the Our House exhibition.
