AMBruno showed the two book projects - One and many pages (2020) and Volume (2021) - at BABE, Bristol and Miss Read, Berlin in 2022.
The One and many pages and Volume projects were shown at BABE (Bristol Artists' Book Event) on the 23rd and 24th April 2022. This biennial fair, in the past held at the Arnolfini, took place at the Bower Ashton Campus of the University of the West of England (UWE), with the stands set out in rooms, foyers, and the workshops of the University's extensive print facilities. To be situated in such sites of making added to the very positive atmosphere of the event, and the AMBruno books formed a particularly impressive display on a large lightbox in the screenprinting studio. It was a great pleasure to share our work with others after such a long pause. Thanks to Sarah Bodman, Tom Sowden, Angie Butler for orchestrating this event.
As part of BABE's Collections Corner Talks, Sophie Loss introduced the two projects, followed by a presentation of their respective books, Eureka! and Tidal, given by Philip Lee and Tim Shore on Saturday 23rd April.
AMBruno participated in the Miss Read Fair in Berlin, which was held at Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) from 20th April to 1st May 2022. The One and many pages and Volume books were rotated, for the display area was quite small for showing two projects. As always, this was a lively and very well attended event, maybe even more so after the hiatus of Covid cancellations. Integral to the Fair is a comprehensive programme of round tables, presentations, debates, and the Conceptual Poetics Day, launched with a talk by conceptual poet and scholar Craig Dworkin investigating the active role of the paper substrate in Stéphane Mallarmé's Un coup de dés n'abolira jamais le hasard.
The Volume artists are: Egidija Čiricaitė, Judy Goldhill, Julie Johnstone, Philip Lee, Linda Parr, Peter Rapp, Anne Rook, Tim Shore, and Cally Trench.
The One and many pages artists are: Mette-Sofie Ambeck, Judy Goldhill, Susan Johanknecht & Katharine Meynell, Pauline Lamont-Fisher, Sophie Loss, John McDowall, Caroline Penn, Ximena Pérez Grobet, Sumi Perera, Peter Rapp, and Cally Trench.
