DESCRIPTION

It Has To Be This Way2, by M. Anthony Penwill forms a part of Lindsay Seers’ exhibition of the same name at National Gallery of Denmark, 22 May - 26 September 2010, and Mead Gallery, University of Warwick, 9 October - 11 December 2010. The book is one element of the installation. Each element has arisen in relation to the total work, and all are mutually co-dependent. From a tangle of manuscripts, research notes and a fateful box of photographs, Lindsay Seers tries to make sense of her step-sister's strange and desperate variant of Tarot in which photographs become a means of divination. The structure of the novella, It Has To Be This Way by M. Anthony Penwill, draws from the archives of both the artist and her sister, Christine. The book is written through a process in which a narrative is founded on a selection of photographs. The archives from which the photographs were taken are constituted by the sisters' shared research from 1996–1999 on Queen Christina of Sweden (1626–1689). Inevitably, given their source, they reflect the life of Christine. M. Anthony Penwill has acted as an editor for this project and is the writer of the resulting publication. It Has To Be This Way2 includes text from It Has To Be This Way published to accompany the exhibition of the same name at Matt's Gallery, 21 January - 5 March 2009.
