The Wandering Art Metropole Publications and Ephemera Archive: Part 2, co-produced by Project Space and Art Metropole, will bring a selection of Art Metropole’s archive to Vancouver from October 5 to November 18. Materials will be displayed on support structures created by artist Shane Krepakevich. Over the course of the project, Vancouver-based leannej and Spoox
Audiozine will interact with the archive in various ways, introducing their understandings, arrangements and interpretations of the materials.
Spoox Audiozine is edited by Julia Feyrer (artist, Meisterschülerin from Städelschule, Frankfurt; represented by Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver and Johan Berggren, Malmö) and Pietro Sammarco (designer). Spoox is an online archive of experimental audio published on a semi-regular basis. Established in 2006, Spoox will continue until 2036 in album-length installments. Spoox attempts to bridge the divide between art, music and other interdisciplinary practices outputted in audio form.
leannej’s work is situated between art and writing, editing and curating, the page and the gallery, and print and the web. Her work has been published in books, magazines and anthologies, and has been installed in art galleries and on the web. Her most recent work explores the form of animated and interactive digital narratives. In 2011, she published Re-reading the Riot Act, a co-publication between Unit Pitt Gallery and Publication Studio Vancouver.
Shane Krepakevich has training in both geology and art, and makes objects with an increasing concern for their use and engagement. His works engage everyday objects as figurative proxies and as mediators of interpersonal exchange.
