Material-i-ty / Material-and-you,
Publication. Essays by Cara Benedetto, Farrah Karapetian and Anthony Leslie. Design by Silvi Naçi. English. ed.100, 25usd.
A deconstruction of the English word materiality offers a conjunctive syntax in Polish language: material- i - ty. Materiał- i - ty translates quite literally into material - and - you. Material and you, becomes a point of departure for a unique consideration of material within its relation to a "you" which is also an "I". Thus, in its deconstructed form the phrase offers a possibility to re-think materiality as that which embodies a space of reflection on the nebulous relationship between a material and a subject. A 2013 collection of essays the book is an archive of thoughts, conversations, philosophical meditations and research that contextualizes the wide notion of materiality in relation to contemporary society and the human subject, from artists Cara Benedetto and Farah Karapetian and writer Anthony Leslie.
