Please join us for the launch ofCollection/Correction, the first survey of Andrew James Paterson’s writings with a reading and screening presented by the artist and editor Jacob Korczynski.

Andrew James Paterson has been producing videos, music and performances for almost forty years. However, his active engagement with all three media is united by a single and often solitary act: writing.

Co-published by Kunstverein Toronto & Mousse Publishing and designed by Laura Pappa & Lotte Lara Schröder,Collection/Correction is anchored upon a series of new and recent poems by Paterson, scripts of his videos The Walking Philosopher (2001), Eating Regular (2004), 12 × 26 (2008) and Passing (2013), as well as four of his fictocriticism texts that were originally published in IMPULSE magazine between 1980 and 1989.

Of Collection/Correction, Ruth Noack asks: “Can language be eaten? Can words be used to build a castle? Would the artist’s prose and poetry provide us with another path to culture than the one trudged by philosophy, literature and criticism? Andrew James Paterson’s writings perform for his readers the liminality between cognition and art.”
