Parede. Prior to my work period titled A Diplomat’s Walk into the Small Infinite at Manifold Books I had taken on the task of translating philosopher’s José Gil’s book Portugal, Today: The Fear of Existing into English, to experience a disturbing inhabitation of the author’s words. Parallel to this writing, that turned out to be a search for friction rather than fluidity, I inscribed my presence in the space of Manifold Books via graphite wall rubbings on paper. I divided the wall into sections and each row of tracings have been printed in a series of 32 booklets including a text on inhabitation as an act of miscommunication. The entire series of booklets has been printed in an edition of two. If you are interested in a copy, or more information, please contact me, or Maartje Fliervoet at Manifold Books.
