The Museum of Abject Sentimentality

  Curator Phil Edwards with WIPE magazine
 
The Museum of Abject Sentimentality
RMIT School of Art Gallery
4 - 12 September 2014

The Museum of Abject Sentimentality examines how contemporary artists use the abject object to explore historical notions of the sublime.

This faux museum investigates the implications of Freidrich Schillers' essay 'On Naïve and Sentimental Poetry' (1795 -1796), in which the author contemplates the interrelation of art, literature and abjection.

Wipe
Wipe is a small assembling publication in which toilet paper is the medium. The use of a nonarchival, indeed anti-archival medium, is intentional, with the ephemerality and fragility of the medium insharp contrast with the artistic concern for archival materials. Conceived as a playful lightweight publication to circumvent postage costs, Wipe nods to Duchamp’s urinal and challenges contributors to make work on a medium that is almost anti-art.

Contributors source their own toilet paper, a source of fascination in itself and a comment on the hygiene practices of different societies. In spite of its intended ephemerality, toilet paper allows rubberstamping, stitching, collaging, and even frottaging. When 20 contributions are received, Wipe is distributed to participants by mail.

Limited copies of WIPE 83 are available for sale for $20 US (including international p&p) email for further details.
