In FORMAT, Sarah Crowner’s first widely distributed artist book, the artist creates a roving collage of source material culled from a diverse range of previously distributed print material: magazines, books, posters, newspapers, postcards, etc. This publication provides a rare insight into the artist’s working practice, demonstrating Crowner’s concerns with visual formulations hinged on historical investigations, particularly in the overlap of art, writing, fashion, and design. Crowner’s graceful positioning of this material gives the reader a spirited visual narrative that unfolds many of our inherited formal mantras of the 20th Century.
In collaboration with the artist, Calvin Rocchio has a designed and produced a table to display FORMAT on at the launch.
