'This new artist book was produced during a six month period of research within Arnolfini’s dance archive and designed with City Edition Studio.

Re-interpreting the model of a gallery guide or programme note as a kind of score, the book intends to evoke a selection of scenes, actions and movements performed at Arnolfini by an international cast of artists. I am interested in how we might get to know these past art-works through ‘doing’ them. Using documentary photographs, brochures and programme notes held in the Reading Room I have selected six performance pieces that took place at Arnolfini between 1976-1998. Employing concrete poetry and cut-up techniques Stairways, Corridors & Corners is an invitation to the visitor to revive traces of performance in the building.

A Spotify album has been specially compiled to accompany the publication, comprising musical extracts from the original performance works.

The artist book is available as a limited edition of 200 from Arnolfini bookshop or through my studio here. It is also available as a free leaflet from the Arnolfini Reading Room.'
