“Facsimile pages of Cobain’s personal journal leant understanding to the shared style of published fan letters. All perforated, my favourite was both book and bedroom poster collection. Belonging was a tear-away. I had accessed something authentic and feeling, becoming their adherent -looking like them, looking at them.
Ann Shelton’s 1997 photobook Redeye operated kind of similarly in the Elam Library. A semblance of artistic being more attainable than romantic, it was easy to fashion ourselves in its pages. In its likeness to the magazines and music videos we were so versed in sourcing, and to our lives as they played out at art school and on K’ Road in our early 20s; the book was assurance.”
