DON’T CALL / ONLY EVER CALL

itindernot

Wat nu, Koetsier? is a project initiated by Chives Archives and René Put in collaboration with Het Parool, inspired by conceptual artist Hans Koetsier’s collection of Advertisements, which were published mainly in Vrij Nederland and Het Parool between 1969-1981. In the spirit of Hans Koetsier, 45 graphic designers are invited to design their own ‘advertisement’, to induce a contemporary work or statement that manifests the force of communication. (www.watnukoetsier.nl)

 

Koetsier seemed to enjoy publishing random telephone numbers of strangers every once in a while. He also put slogans like “I LOVE YOU” and “AMSTERDAM! YES DEAR” in print. I was born just a few days before Koetsier published his last ad in 1981. My contribution, “I TINDER NOT, 0649883402, Rebecca, 35, artist” was published in Het Parool on August 5.

I contributed a series of unintentional studio selfies to LA.NL, a publication by Annie Goodner.

With contributions by: Gianmaria Andreetta, Ivan Cheng, Becket Flannery, Annie Goodner, Elizabeth Graham, Margaret Haines, Rosie Haward, Ghislaine Leung, Anna Reutinger.

 

Restriction, constriction, constructed space, landscape as play-acting, too much space, not enough space, not enough air, trying to get away, fleeing to the desert, stories of escapism, drowning in television, misusing the spotlight. LA.NL is a publication, but it’s also an approach to writing.

all the divided selves (are burning softly, are) expropriating exposure (. In a paradox of subjugation and empowerment:) You are what you eat.

 

As such and over the course of the past yyyyeeeaaaarrrr, Working Title, Working Clothes has mutated and updated itself from Belive, Ha Ho or If We All Cut Off Our Ears Who is Left To Hear? to a collection of modified shirts, WTWC Adore, to the Campaign, to a situation with in inflatable latex objects, heating cables and oxygen as the #5 cause of death, Copenhagen, I couldn’t care less about your oxygen. To a series of figures of display of 0 and 1 and a slow design linocut monoprint bootleg of the original collection, WrkngClths presents/is presented by Wretch Log Oinks.

 

Why can’t you hold me? Don’t touch me. call me if you need more info. I mean like a broken telephone and pixelating oneself and letting the work ingest and digest itself, its Brand is burning softly. this one, group representative, slipped.
