Senior lecturer BA Fine art ‘WhiteNoise’ by Greig Burgoyne book launch at RIBA London


RIBA bookshop 66 Portland Place Marylebone London W1B 1AD
The bookwork WhiteNoise is an extension of the immersive, contingent and expansive collaborative residency WhiteNoise that took place at the Centre for Recent Drawing in London, between Greig Burgoyne & Rossella Emanuele. Combining commissioned writing and conceptually driven design akin to the process led, performative and rule-based agency that the residency explored.

Conceptually, visually and physically WhiteNoise bookwork opens up a new direction in Burgoyne & Emanuele exploration of possible crossovers between contemporary drawing and performance as a temporal and collaborative experience. Beyond markmaking but rather through the use of French folding and colour coding, WhiteNoise bookwork offers rhizomatic orientations with multiple entry and exit points akin to Burgoyne & Emanuele approaches developed during the residency.

Offering a systematic dialogue between hand and eyes WhiteNoise bookwork generates a space of becoming that translates B & E performative dimension, its durational materiality and its ordering, chance-led or repetitive systems into a bold and immersive bookwork.
