Published as a companion volume to Annette, the artist’s ambitious bookwork, the catalogue presents the first published survey of the artists work. As the majority of Counsell’s work only ever exists for the limited period of an exhibition documentation is the only record of her work once its exhibition is over. Structured around approximately a dozen ‘chapters’, each consisting of documentation of a particular work and the artist’s statement about it, the catalogue will encompass the development of Counsell’s work over 8 years, ranging through her work made for both galleries (including Matt’s Gallery and Galerie Jennifer Flay, Paris) and more unorthodox venues (including projects organised by Artangel and TSWA), and concluding with the concurrent project, the bookwork Annette. Referencing the specific places for which the pieces were made as well as the pieces themselves, the book explores the essential relationship between location and creation in Counsell’s practice.
