Book One: Selected Writings is an illustrated collection of all of the artist's texts written around her films and other projects, from 1992 - 2003. Book Two: 12.10.02 - 21.12.02 is a reprint of the artist's book made in relation to her show at the Kunstverein fur die Rheinlande und Westfalen in October 2002. The title of the book is the exhibition dates, which in turn relate to the discovery and filming of Marcel Broodthaers' studio, his 'Section Cinema', in Dusseldorf and the works that are inspired by this. Book Three. W G Seblad is an homage to the German writer who was killed in a car accident in 2001. It takes it's starting point from a reference in his book, The Rings of Saturn, which has a direct family connection to the artist. It then weaves a meandering narrative between history and autobiography, England and Germany, and ends up, in Texas. Book four: The Russian Ending shows a set of twenty photogravures made by the artist in 2001. Using found postcards showing tragedies, she made them into fictional sad endings to films. Book Five: Boots is a soliloquy presented in three language: English, French and German. Each version is a different fiction of the movement and musings of the character, Boots, in a villa in Portugal. The book has the appearance of a film script, but is in fact a transcription of the action in a film with the same name. Book Six: complete works and Filmography 1991-2003 is a comprehensive illustrated list of all the exhibited films, projects and related works. Book Seven: Essays includes texts by Julia Garimorth, Rita Kersting, Jean-Luc Nancy and Michael Newman with a foreword byLaurence Bosse. Slipcase is near fine, all books are pristine and fine.
