Words

Words. Words words Words: Words Words Words words Words is the most recent work by British artist Robert Good. It is a transposition of the essay Postproduction. Culture as Screenplay: How Art Reprograms the World by French writer and curator Nicolas Bourriaud.

 Words. Words words Words: Words Words Words words Words replaces Bourriaud’s text word for word with the words ‘word’ and ‘and’. It is an act of destruction but also an act of liberation, freeing the mind from the constraints of language and opinion.

 By keeping the book’s original format but emptying it of any possible meaning, Good also challenges both the role of the book as a repository of knowledge and the role of the author as purveyor of knowledge.

Robert Good is an artist based in Cambridge, England.

REVIEWS

In “Words. Words words Words: Words Words Words words Words” Good almost surpasses Bourriaud’s original work with his subtle and somewhat unexpected interjection of “And” which he expertly withholds from the reader, concealing it within his multi layered text, in a way that most authors would find hard to replicate, with the same degree of success.  Good’s ability to completely draw the reader into a different reality and through a journey of suspense, leading to the inevitable, yet credible conclusion, can only be admired and commended.  It is without doubt a masterly piece of writingSimon Humphreys, Author
