END MATTER. {Cover title: Katrina Palmer: End Matter.} Artangel, London, 2015. Published in association with Book Works, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. with 14 ills. 18 x 12 cm. ISBN 9781906012731 In English.
Publisher's description: UK-based contemporary artist Katrina Palmer builds sculptures using words. In 2013, she won a competition for "groundbreaking site-specific proposals that transform the cultural landscape" run by BBC Radio 4 and Artangel. Palmer worked with a piece of land that had been hollowed out by quarrying -- the Island of Portland, Dorset -- to produce a haunting narrative and site-specific walk. Artist book End Matter forms one part of Palmer's story-sculpture. Comprised of the sitework's documentary vestiges -- appendices, acknowledgments, an epilogue, an index, a map, photographs and postscripts, and audio sections from her broadcast (which one can listen to online or while walking around Portland) -- the book tells the story of the loss of Portland's stone through the mysterious work of The Loss Adjusters, who are responsible for balancing the material and historical shifts of the island's being. A compelling blend of imagination and reality from this young and adventurous artist.
