We are delighted to be taking part in the Artist Bookmakers’ Market as part of this years Art Walk Porty. The theme is Land Marks and we have prepared a fun flexagon book with some examples of how the sea marks the land with pictures of sand patterns.

Landmark Flexagon book

A new book has been made in collaboration with photographer and printer Judith Rowan, called Forth Margins which will launch at the market. Woodblock prints take you on a journey along the Firth of Forth coastline.

Forth Margins

We will also have new magazines from the Elsewhere, works from Edinburgh based Japanese illustrator Ryoko Tamura, local poet Roddy Shippin and work by Edinburgh and Elsewhere regulars Catherine Marshall and Elaine Robson.

Curriculum Vitae

BALTIC SPAM!

SPAM stands for Self-Publishing Artists’ Market – a great acronym!

The Foundation Press made a stunning collaborative risograph magazine using elements from all the participants on the day for everyone to enjoy.

We had a wonderful time at the BALTIC , some familiar faces and some new friends. Thanks to everyone who made it such a lovely event.

Sat 27 April 11.00-18.00

Edinburgh and Elsewhere is travelling south in a couple of weeks to take part in the BALTIC Self-Publishing Artists’ Market 2019.

Newcastle and Gateshead are such inspiring places with beautiful architecture and elegant bridges – perfect for adapting into a custom repeat pattern as endpapers for the artists’ books.

Hope to see you there!

All the fun of the merry-go-round

‘Roll up, roll up to the merry-go-round ! Escape the humdrum ! Stories are written/erased, images blur/reappear. A ride that ends where it begins, where no journey is ever the same…’

Art Walk Porty 2018 ends tomorrow so this is the last day to see the books, prints and stair installation at 12 Triangles.

The limited edition books produced for the project –

It’s No.One For Fun by Catherine Marshall leads you through the fairs ups and downs.

Merry Go Round by Elaine Robson forms a rotation of letter-forms cut from photographs of an out-of-time carousel.

Circular carousel artists’ books of folds and inserts complete the book display.

Art Walk Porty 2018 – ‘Pleasure Ground’

30th August to 9th September

The merry-go-round is a favourite fairground ride for many, offering the chance to escape from the humdrum, albeit momentarily, into a different world. It is a place where you can travel, but without going anywhere. The ride just ends where it starts. But many things can happen riding the merry-go-round. Memories can fade away or be recollected, stories can be written or conversely erased, images can blur, fade and reappear all within a matter of moments. The ride is repeated but different details appear, other moments matter, new thoughts occur.

The artists collaborating on this project are :

Catherine Marshall is an artist and writer based in Edinburgh. She studied Fine Art Photography at Glasgow School of Art. She has lived in different countries and cities, including Berlin which she made her home for a decade.

Dinda Fass is a visual artist based in Edinburgh, who works with the written word, photography, and moving image. She researches the nature of the photographic image, its relations with suggested narratives, and the dialectic between the still and moving image.

Elaine Robson is inspired by the contrasts of urban environments and takes delight in exploring cultures and the genius loci. In this exhibition she uses photographic works and artists’ books to show the colourful chaos of the fair.

Pages 2018

PAGES Leeds International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair The Tetley, Leeds, Sat 3rd – Sun 4th March 2018

Edinburgh and Elsewhere brings photography, writing, illustration and publishing together with a special emphasis on place, in all of its forms.

Catherine Marshall’s new pocket-sized book, To the Peninsula, uses found poetry and photography to revisit an area by the Thames in South-East London that has undergone massive development, playfully questioning what lies behind the façade.

Elaine Robson‘s book, Nowhere, chronicles a journey across the Karst, a limestone plateau which forms the border between the Italian city of Trieste and the Slovenian countryside. Text, lino-cut and photographic illustrations evoke the transitions of territory from wilderness to landscaped.


Inspired by the bravery of all mothers, My Mothers Shadow leads the reader round a gallery of insights.

Elsewhere, an outstanding journal based in Berlin which is dedicated to high quality written and visual art that explores place – from cities to edge lands, heartlands to island communities, will also be on sale on our stand. Invited international artists whose works focus on place will join us.

Edinburgh Zine Library

To celebrate the opening of the Edinburgh ‘Zine Library we have produced a little dos-a-dos ‘zine with excerpts of forthcoming work to be donated to the new library.

 

 

Can we keep the original intention of an artists’ vision or do we have to view work through the lens of history? A poem and accompanying photographs contemplate this past dichotomy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catherine Marshall is an artist and writer based in Edinburgh. She studied photography at the
London College of Communication and Glasgow School of Art. She has lived in different countries and cities including Berlin, which she made her home for a decade. To date she has published two artist books that combine photography and her writing: To the Peninsula, My Friends and Fleetway.

 

“Over Under Through” examines the everyday urban obstacles we encounter as we journey from place to place. Sunlight travels with us, casting shadows but also penetrating through
the layers of society, impartially revealing aspirations and fears.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elaine Robson first started producing photography ‘zines in 2012 for the Alternative
Photography Festival. Since then she has gone on to produce artist books and ’zines, working collaboratively and as an individual.  Inspiration is found from her time living and working in Asia, Europe and Africa, but most illuminating of all are the everyday details of her home town of Edinburgh.
