Tete-beche binding. Publisher's description: For three months, visual artists Doris Denekamp and Geert van Mil lived on the grounds of a psychiatric institution where, together with the patients, they read fragments of Melville's Moby-Dick. During the collective reading it quickly became clear that the fears, obsessions and sorrows of the whaling crew were pertinent, inspiring patients to share their personal stories. Based on these conversations, Denekamp and Van Mil wrote Call Me Ishmael, a story in which transcript, fiction and delusion merge with one another. Infrared photographs taken by the artists of the partly concealed pavilions of the psychiatric institution add a tranquil backdrop to the ever-shifting story and make this book a fascinating record of this narrative intervention. Doris Denekamp (b. 1984) and Geert van Mil (b. 1983) have worked together since 2011 investigating the role of stories in society today through installations, publications, performances and collaborative exchanges, often in the location where the work evolved.
