You are of vital importance
Sarah Tripp (2014)
You are of vital importance is a collection of fictional prose pieces concerned with the construction of character and the dynamics of social interaction. These pieces employ a variety of tones and forms to examine proximity and distance between characters, communities and objects.
Tripp is interested in the critique of narrative, the structuring of unstructured activity and the translation of bodily experience. Her works take various forms including printed words, film and performance and are marked by the use of multiple perspectives, episodic structures and suspended denouement.
Sarah Tripp is an artist and writer. Her works include 24 stops, Camden Arts Centre, London; Swallowing Incoherence, Collective Gallery, Edinburgh; You Are Of Vital Importance To The Art Community, Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow; Why I disappeared, Cove Park, Argyll and Bute and Why I Can’t Eat at Asia Style, 2HB, Glasgow. She co-produces the pamphlet Gnommero. Her work Aide-Memoires: As if was published in ‘What Am I?’ The Happy Hypocrite Issue 5 (2010) edited by Maria Fusco.
Published by Book Works; edition of 1,000 copies; designed by Nienke Terpsma.
The Happy Hypocrite – Heat Island, issue 7
Guest edited by Isla Leaver-Yap (2014)
Always subject to change, invasion, adaptation, and enhancement, the body is our most essential material, our primary limit. Touch, meanwhile, is the body’s only unmediated form of acquiring embodied knowledge, constantly experiencing the texture of the present tense.
The Happy Hypocrite – Heat Island seeks to understand how our hands (as both digital and analogous devices) and our bodies physically traverse and negotiate knowledge. This issue comprises a temporary assembly of individuals who are acutely and intelligently aware that what we choose to do with our bodies, how we express it alone or with others, can provide valuable cultural openings and resistances to bodily regulation, whether self-imposed or via external legislation.
With contributions and new work by Park McArthur, Duncan Marquiss, Dena Yago, Elaine Cameron-Weir, Giuseppe Mistretta, Francis Sanzaro, Allison Gibbs, Will Holder, Mary Simpson, Charlotte Prodger, an interview concerning ‘adjustment’ between Anna McLauchlan and Gerry Kielty, and reprinted material by Paul Nash and Stow Print College, Glasgow.
Published by Book Works; edition of 1,000 copies; colour and black and white throughout, with scented paper insert; 96pp; soft cover; designed by APFEL (A Practice for Everyday Life).
