Self Portrait as Someone Else
A pamphlet of poems in response to Rodney Graham’s retrospective exhibition That’s Not Me at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead in 2017. The book was commissioned by BALTIC as part of my MRLA residency with them and it was presented alongside the exhibition as an alternative guide to Graham’s work.
The cover design is a creative rendering of a section of ‘Vathek’ by William Beckford that describes five pleasure pavilions. This text was deliberately plagiarised by Graham in his 2012 deluxe edition of Landor’s Cottage.
