Abstract

liquid memories ~to read with water (2022) is a collective photobook, an assemblage of experimental photo-texts that respond to the challenge of photographing/remembering with water.

The publication takes its title from the liquid memories workshops, in which participants experimented with methodologies of ‘wateryquery’ developed out of artistic research with water; Step by step guided exercises were developed to figure bodies of water, with a focusing moment of connection with the intricacy of watery memories. The words ‘water’ and ‘enquiry’ form a new word that doesn’t feature in standard dictionaries and suggests a felt sense of enquiring with water.

The publication acts both as a collection of the twenty-three participating artists' responses and as a ‘user’s guide’ to the project's wateryquery playful experiments.
