 Artist invited to contribute twenty 'Volumes (of vulnerability)' curated by Susan Johanknecht & Katherine Meynell, published to coincide with the millennium. Participating artists contributed work interpreting the concept of vulnerability. In 'Title' by Sophie Artemis the physical instability or vulnerability of the book is made explicit by the intentional 'coffee stains' on the cover and central opening of the work, while the text is both a close examination of the individual components that make up a book as well as a conscious journey through the act of reading

 


The "Volumes" were toured with the first exhibition opening at The StandpointGallery, Hoxton London. Other venues included TheDean CloughGalleries, Halifax; Muzeum Ksiazki Artystycnej, Lodz Poland;Buchgalerie Mergemeier, Dusseldorf; State Library of Queensland, Australia; Lopdell House Gallery Auckland NZ;Mills College Oakland California; University of Louisiana, Baton Rouge.
