Moyra Davey - Speaker Receiver - Sternberg Press 2010
Edited by ADAM SZYMCZYK
Texts by GEORGE BAKER, BILL HORRIGAN, CHRIS KRAUS, ERIC ROSENBERG.
The monograph Speaker Receiver brings the diverse aspects of Davey’s work together. It features “Index Cards”, a new piece of writing by Davey, her personal mapping of Paris and her habit of reading newspapers. Rather than formulating a systematic argument, the essay unfolds in a series of short “takes” or fragments.
Photographs distributed in order of their appearance within the texts interrupt the various writers’ contributions. Furthermore, for Davey’s own essay, and for the interview, the artist chose to reproduce her photographic “Mailers”, a unique series and format of work that Davey likes to refer to simply as “mail art”.
