Lone Twin’s Study Room Guide

Notes

You may perform a spell against the madness (2006) by Lone Twin. by thisisLiveArt

 

Gregg Whelan of Lone Twin was commissioned to write a guide looking at ideas of site and space, including performance and time-based works made in, through and for specific locations. Lone Twin’s Study Room Guide is called You may perform a spell against madness and is a selection of works by artists that attempt, however reliably or unreliably, to guide us: works that attempt to offer a charting or a mapping, of what possibly lies ahead, be that a city, a forest, a face, a cultural condition, a time, a language, a room or a sky. The Guide can be viewed below, is available to view in our Study Room, or can be downloaded as a pdf.
