linda marie walker: room

9.7 – 7.8.2010

Artist's talk & reading 6pm wed 14 July in the gallerylmw2010

The launch of noelsheridanprojectspace with a solo show by Linda Marie Walker - an artist of key influence in experimental art/writing/design/making practice. Room brings together some of the works exhibited over the last few years with new works - and works by many of the artist's friends – in an examination of the encounter, the invitation, and the persistence of writing as a visual art practice that exceeds the instrumental.

"What is this about – for writing, for the accumulation of books. Each book an object, a thing, inside of which is the thing of trying to write, of trying to find a way to write (given the day, and the weather, and the work at hand), to be just in the moment of thought, and then following (if possible) (“… entering a cage of birds without making them sing …” (Chuang-tze, in John Cage, For The Birds). A sort of quietness, nothing to be said, a sort of freedom too. To do as one does (if possible), and the worry of that. Always adequate and inadequate. A particular necessity, for peacefulness. Trying to find how to write peace. As a kind of liveliness, slowly (and this peace a drop in the ocean, slowly)." artist's notes
