Avanti, Lady Mikado!
Offenbach am Main and Terrinca, Germany:: usus,, 2004.. Edition of 10. 7 x 8"; 40 pages (12 pages with pictures, 28 pages with text). German and English text. Archival ink jet and laser printing. Coptic binding. Bound in unadorned cloth-covered boards. This book was part of a larger project that involved book, print, video, and improvised musical performance. Ulrike Stolz: "Lady Mikado is an interdisciplinary project. [The] starting point was a text I wrote, that turned into an artists' book and is also the background of a portfolio of typographical prints. ... The text that formed the basis of the project is in German. It does not tell a story, but strings together fragments of phrases, parts of which are alienated and repeated and mixed with pictorial passages. The prints in the portfolio use only the text, but words and letters were cut into pieces and then rearranged thus creating new images. "The book uses some of these typographical images, combining them with fragments of photographs which creates a tension between the abstract signs and a kind of representation of reality. The book has two parts: text and images are separated. "The whole project is about answers and mirrorings, about transformation and translation: from one language to another, from language into typographic form, from both language and typography into video, from the moving image to music and sound, and to spoken language and text again.
