LOCAL COLOUR: Ghosts, variations
Monday 17 December 2012

In collaboration with Canadian poet Derek Beaulieu, Malmö-based publishing imprint In Edit Mode Press now presents Local Colour : Ghosts, variations. The collection takes as its point of departure Paul Auster’s novella Ghosts, and Beaulieu’s reworking of Auster’s text, Local Colour. It invites a number of writers, poets, musicians and artists to contribute with further reworkings, intermedial translations and editing projects exploring various intersections between Auster’s text and Beaulieu’s graphic interpretation. The resulting volume consists of four bound volumes, a series of pamphlets and prints, an audio-CD and a piece of computer software.

To celebrate the release of the publication, we welcome you to an evening of performances and readings at Signal. The program for the evening features a reading by Derek Beaulieu, performances by Helen White, and a sound piece by Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim performed by Stine Janvin Motland and Inga Margrete Aas. Additionally, a new sound piece by Pär Thörn, recorded specifically for the event, will be presented.

Contributing poets, artists and musicians in the publication include Steve Giasson, Eric Zboya, Helen White, Elisabeth Tonnard, Gary Barlow, Pär Thörn, Peder Alexis Olsson, Cecilie Jordheim, Andreas Kurtsson, Cia Rinne, Martin Glaz Serup, and Ola Lindefelt.

IN EDIT MODE PRESS is a Malmö based publishing initiative focusing on experimental, contemporary text, – sound, – and graphic work. We primarily publish themed collections exploring specific issues and aesthetic strategies, taking a diverse range of approaches and perspectives into account. From the editorial offices / book shop at Malmö’s Dalaplan, the publications are made by hand and in low print runs, often by using unconventional formats and techniques.
