Middling English explores some of the pleasures and complexities of language use, in and through writing.
The project brought together multi-sensory elements – spoken pieces, audiophonic compositions, printed broadsides and the strange memory world of pop lyrics – all presented through a stunning architectural installation.
This publication was developed in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name.
Produced as a small edition of 500, this book is illustrated with installation photography, associated imagery and special double gatefolds featuring broadsides within the exhibition.
Also included are texts by the artist, a commissioned essay by writer and collaborator Vincent Broqua, development notes with architectural collaborators DvsN, and an extensive interview between Caroline Bergvall and artist Imogen Stidworthy.
Also included is a CD containing three text and sound pieces from the exhibition.
