Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Four directions out there, four contrasting interpretations of a prepared text and open score based on David Henri Thoreau's transcendental essay about walking (1851).

readwalking, solitary thinging, in partial light *, step by step, a word at a time in silence aloud, together alone, discreetly randomly, in hope in wonder, here and there."-Edition Wandelwieser


Artist Biographies

"Emmanuelle Waeckerlé is a London based artist and academic whose interdisciplinary practice explores the materiality of language and connecting issues of place and identity. Through a number of interrelated projects stretching back over twenty years, Emmanuelle uses performative strategies (live and mediated), text (very few words) and on the page work to construct ephemeral occasions, scores and other creative tools suitable for the marking and reading of (being in) space. Recurring themes are - the relationship between walking writing and reading - the limitations and creative potential of translation - poetics of survival and resistance

Emmanuelle is a Reader in Photography and relational practices at University for the Creative Art in Farnham, and director of bookRoom research cluster and bookRoom press. Between 2007 and 2014 she was part of the small team running the centre des livres d'artistes in St Yrieix la Perche in France.

Emmanuelle studied Photography with Mick Williamson at Sir John Cass (now Metropolitan University). She then completed an MA in Fine Art at the Slade school of Art in 1996 under Stuart Brisley. After a few years of part time lecturing on the Photography degree and the MA in Fine Art at Kent Institute of Art and design she was appointed senior lecturer in Visual communication at University for the Creative Arts in Farnham in the Photography department. She became a Reader in 2012."
