Emotionarama

 

 

New artist's book Emotionarama by Andro Semeiko co-edited with curator Andrew Hunt was launched at PEER, on Friday 20 August 2021, with reading of extracts by the actors Siân Phillips and Bill Bingham. Further book launch and book readings will take place at BALTIC, Shore Rd, Gateshead, UK and other venues  (dates TBA)

 

Emotionarama presents a range of artists’ ideas that are described in an overtly emotional or demonstrative manner through short pieces of creative writing. Participants were invited to produce a text that defined their imaginative and mental processes whilst creating an artwork. For example, some have chosen to record a method of thinking behind the production of an existing piece, while others discuss a concept for an unmade artwork in a reflective manner, and/or its materiality, texture, colour, shape, size, and content.
