Marlaina Buch - Hunter Rapper

Marlaina Buch - Hunter Rapper Perro Verlag Publishing
http://www.perroverlag.com/newcatalogue.html

In this book, the performance artist Marlaina Buch gives us her rap lyrics that are not for the faint vegetarian heart. Buch’s message might be that eating meat is OK, and even good for you, and hunting animals for food is better than buying your meat over the counter in the supermarket. “Forest Flesh ain’t diabolical. Grill it Babe, it’s biological!” Is Buch being ironic here? In another stanza from the same song: “‘I don’t eat eggs. I don’t eat cheese.’ Please! Your cell phone is killing off them killer bees.” 20 pages, with 5 colour pages of Buch’s performances.

Jo Cook & Wesley Mulvin - The Institute for the Science of Identity Temporary Office and Reading Room Perro Verlag Publishing
http://www.perroverlag.com/backcatalogue.html


This new 40-page catalogue documents the peripatetic activities of the Institute for the Science of Identity as they take over various locations for their temporary office and reading room. Printed by Jo Cook and Wesley Mulvin, this publication is a catalogue of low-tech printing techniques. Letterpress posters for various takeovers and makeovers of other institutions’ spaces are cut up and bound within the publication. Deliberately poor-quality photocopies sit alongside carefully printed woodcuts. Other pages are printed with rubber stamps, Print Gocco and letterpress. An interesting variety of coloured papers is used throughout. A reading room membership card is included in a library pocket on the inside back cover.

40 pages. Perfect-bound with stiff cardboard covers. Three colour wraparound paper dust jacket. 22,5x14,5 cm. 2010.

http://www.perroverlag.com/backcatalogue.html

These catalogues for Noxious Sector’s World Telekinesis Competition, held in various venues from Victoria, Canada, to Seattle, USA, document the events in which more than 31 teams from around the world spent one hour attempting to remotely influence the behaviour of a candle flame using only their minds. The catalogues provide a thorough documentation of each team, their members’ profiles, tournament boards and match results. There are comprehensive essays in each year's catalogue. The 2008 catalogue essay by Ted Hiebert begins with a quote from Jean Baudrillard, “Facing a world that is unintelligible and problematic, our task is clear: we must make that world even more unintelligible, even more problematic.” This quote could also be Noxious Sector’s guiding aesthetic for this annual event.

Each year’s publication: approximately 125 pages, 94 in colour. Perfect-bound. 21x13,5 cm. Catalogues for 2010 and 2011 are still in production.
