This artist’s book was made together with my partner Catrine Thorstensen after spending the month of June 2010 at the SIM residency in Reykjavik, Iceland. It contains projects up to 15 pages length, all somehow related to Iceland. The contributions are arranged according to geographical locations, mimicking a guidebook.
The initial version of Máli was produced in Norwegian. An invitation to the exhibition "Island: 22 Artists on Iceland" in Detroit, triggered the idea of an English remake. We decided to include guest contributions, so during spring 2011 we invited all our co-habitants from Reykjavik 2010 to send us some Iceland-related work fit for a book.
The response was good, and the amount of new material gave the English Máli 2 a character of its own. About half of Máli 2 consists of 11 contributions from 14 artists in total. The other half is our own projects, edited down and partly reworked from the first edition.
