Myfanwy MacLeod: Whole Lotta Love

Myfanwy MacLeod: Whole Lotta Love
Artist Book and Print Edition Launch + Exhibition
Friday December 9th at 8:30pm at Presentation House Gallery
Exhibition December 10 - January 8, 2012

Join Publication Studio Vancouver at the Presentation House Gallery where we will launch "Whole Lotta Love" an artist book and limited silk-screen edition by Myfanwy Macleod. The book and edition will be on exhibit until January 8th.

In "Whole Lotta Love" MacLeod takes on one of the most iconic songs by one of the most prolific bands in classic rock history to present the reader with an x-rated illustrated songbook. By fixing the song within the codex and picturing the lyrics via simple line drawings and bubble lettering, MacLeod privileges the visual over the sonic, offering another type of cover version. Through the highly-sexed depiction of the song, the artist perverts the dominant male codes of rock and roll by opening up a point of entry for female desire all the while maintaining her characteristic humor and wit.

"Whole Lotta Love" is the title of Myfanwy MacLeod?s new artist book and a limited edition silk-screen print edition published by Publication Studio Vancouver and is the first project our new Slade Editions series.

Concrete Sound Reading

At the gallery Norte Maar in Brooklyn, NY Christine Hou will be reading from a new publication in collaboration with artist Audra Wolowiec as well as from her own Accumulations. The collaboration between Hou and Wolowiec accompanies the current exhibition at Norte Maar.


The publication which accompanies the exhibition is based on a conversation between Hou and Wolowiec, and acts 
as an extension of the installation. Based on an email exchange of images and text over a one-month period, it is a 
dialogic experiment that unfolds the poetics of responding.

- an excerpt from Concrete Sound, a publication by Audra Wolowiec + Christine Shan Shan Hou
AUDRA WOLOWIEC is an interdisciplinary artist from Detroit, MI, living in Brooklyn, NY. Her work mines themes of 
communication, voice, and modes of exchange. In recreating natural phenomena and trace effects, she explores the 
idea of a fading connection to create an elusive but shared experience. She received an MFA from the Rhode Island 
School of Design and has shown work at Magnan-Metz (New York), Pocket Utopia (Brooklyn), and The Museum of 
New Art (Detroit). This past April, her sound score was featured in Norte Maar’s multi-media collaborative ballet titled 
In the Use of Others for the Change (2011). She received an audio commission by Art in General (New York) and was 
recently featured in Thresholds Magazine, MIT Department of Architecture. www.audrawolowiec.com
CHRISTINE SHAN SHAN HOU is a poet and arts writer living in Brooklyn, NY. Publication Studio published her first 
book of poetry, Accumulations in 2010. Additional poems appear in Weekday, EOAGH, and Parallelograms. She has 
curated exhibitions at Art in General and Jack the Pelican Presents. Her awards include The Flow Chart 
Foundation/The Academy for American Poets and the Zora Neale Hurston Scholarship. She currently runs the New
