Tuesday, April 30, guest joined Aperture’s PhotoBook Review and Self Publish, Be Happy for COMPILATION TOKYO: REMIX, a launch party for the Self Publish, Be Happy mash-up and PhotoBook Review 004, edited by Charlotte Cotton.
Artist Charlie Engman worked in situ to create a new artist zine by remixing COMPILATION TOKYO, a recent Self Publish, Be Happy / Goliga Books publication of work by young Japanese photographers, Go Itami, Koji Kitagawa, Taisuke Koyama, Shinryo Saeki, Masafumi Shirakami, Hiroshi Takagi, Hiroshi Takizawa, Nerhol, Kenji Hirasawa, Daisuke Yokota, and Anne Schwalbe. This screen-printed, zine-like publication was originally created during a live event in Tokyo on April 7, 2013.
Throughout the evening Engman cut apart, re-photographed, and digitally modified photographs in order to create an entirely new body of work. These new works were printed and photocopied on site to create a signed and limited-edition artist publication.
