In Footnotes to Triangular Cartographies, the notes become the body of the text. A detail observed along a boulevard of imperial palms in Havana connects the gardens of the Portuguese court in colonial Brazil to an ancient currency in West Africa. In her travel writings, Ana Hupe maps historical relationships as she immerses herself in Yoruba philosophy. The book thus relays an intermittent incursion into the universe of invisible and poetic forces, which teach that some apparent coincidences can also be recognized as synchronicities that re-enchant worlds and increase speculative capacities. As an encounter between the visual arts and the disciplines of anthropology, art history, literature, photography, and philosophy, this volume in the Processing Process series of artists’ monographs also moves through Brazil, Cuba, and Nigeria on its way to other destinations, and other destinies.
ABOUT THE PROCESSING PROCESS SERIES: Unfolding at the intersection of the artist monograph, aesthetic manifesto, and solo exhibition, K. Verlag’s Processing Process series is dedicated to artists’ pathbreaking forays into culture, history, technoscience, ecology, and narrative technique. While focusing acutely on each artist’s unique concerns, research sites, and artistic media and practice, the seriality of Processing Process is relayed through recurring formal parameters and the inclusion of an in-depth interview with K. that unpacks site-sensitive, technical, and processual methodologies. Processing Process editors and designers are committed to working closely with contributors to produce provocative, genre-defying research creations that experiment with K.’s signature form of the book-as-exhibition.
