In collaboration with Canadian poet Derek Beaulieu, Malmö-based
publishing imprint In Edit Mode Press now presents Local Colour :
Ghosts, variations. The collection takes as its point of departure Paul
Auster‘s novella Ghosts, and Beaulieu’s reworking of Auster’s text,
Local Colour. It invites a number of writers, poets, musicians and
artists to contribute with further reworkings, intermedial translations
and editing projects exploring various intersections between Auster’s
text and Beaulieu’s graphic interpretation. The resulting volume
consists of four bound volumes, a series of pamphlets and prints, an
audio-CD and a piece of computer software.
To celebrate the
release of the publication, we are also putting on an evening of
performances and readings at Signal – Centre for Contemporary Art. The
program for the evening features a reading by Derek Beaulieu,
performances by Helen White, and a sound piece by Cecilie Bjørgås
Jordheim performed by Stine Janvin Motland and Inga Margrete Aas.
Additionally, a new sound piece by Pär Thörn, recorded specifically for
the event, will be presented.
