Issue #12 – Spring 2012

Lara Favaretto. Untitled

Untitled by Lara Favaretto closes Peep-Hole Sheet’s third season. A systematic list of books, writings and films runs uninterruptedly, occupying all available space. It is an excerpt from the artist’s archive, the source of the suggestions, ideas and epiphanies of her works. This selection of materials provided by other authors fuels Favaretto’s visions and obsessions, and in turn acquires tangibility in her works through a cinematographic image or conceptual synthesis. And, as is often the case in her oeuvre, her contribution to Peep-Hole Sheet also has disturbing elements that break up the flow of information, yet at the same time – as in a slapstick comedy – make everything a little less serious.

Lara Favaretto (Treviso, 1973) lives and works in Turin.

Peep-Hole Sheet is a quarterly of writings by artists. Each issue is dedicated solely to one artist, who is invited to contribute with an unpublished text whose content is completely free in terms both of subject and format. The texts are published in their original language, with accompanying translation in English. Peep-Hole Sheet is meant for those who believe artists are catalysts for ideas all around us, and who want to read their words without any filter. Over time it aspires to build up an anthology of writings that might open new perspectives for interpreting and understanding our times. Peep-Hole Sheet is published and distributed by Mousse Publishing.
