Katrina Palmer | End Matter

Katrina Palmer
End Matter
London, UK: Bookworks, 2015
96pp,. 12 x 18 cm, softcover
Edition of 1500

This title consists of a text comprised solely from end matter: epilogues, postscripts, afterwords, addenda, and appendices. It was co-published by Artangel, who co-commissioned the work, with BBC Radio 4, after an open call. Palmer was selected out of 1,500 applicants.

Artangel commissions and produces artworks outside of the confines of galleries and museums. Other 2015 projects include Miranda July's New Society and PJ Harvey's Recording in Session (which saw Harvey's latest LP being recorded as a public exhibition). Classic Artangel projects include House by Rachel Whiteread, The Missing Voice by Janet Cardiff, Self-Storage by Laurie Anderson and Brian Eno, Seven Walks by Francis Alys, and Jeremy Deller's The Battle of Orgreave. Many of these projects become editions: Deller's was released as a DVD, Cardiff's a book with CD, the Gavin Bryar's Man in a Room Gambling CD, etc. etc.

End Matter, designed by James Langdon, is available from the publishers, here, for £10.00.
