Site-writing: The Architecture of Art Criticism

Al-Ani, Jananne and Rendell, Jane (2011) Site-writing: The Architecture of Art Criticism. In: Site-writing: The Architecture of Art Criticism. IB Tauris, London. ISBN 9781845119997

Type of Research: Book Section
Creators: Al-Ani, Jananne and Rendell, Jane

In Site-writing: The Architecture of Art Criticism Professor Jane Rendell explores what happens when discussions concerning situatedness and site-specificity enter the writing of art criticism. The sites explored in the book are the material, emotional, political and conceptual settings of the artwork's construction, exhibition and documentation, as well as those remembered, dreamed and imagined.

Through five different spatial configurations - both psychic and architectural - "Site-Writing" explores artworks by artists as diverse as Jananne Al-Ani, Elina Brotherus, Nathan Coley, Tracey Emin, Christina Iglesias and Do-Ho Suh, aiming to adapt such psychoanalytic ways of working as free association and conjectural interpretation to art criticism.

Works by Al-Ani referred to in the second chapter, Configuration 2 - Back and Forth, include The Visit: Echo and Muse (2004), Untitled (2002) and She Said (2000)
