Sister Rosetta Tharpe - Up Above My Head
Rockonski announces the publication of RCMP, a book by Tonik Wojtyra, making it's debut this week in Halifax at the exhibition ERI:3 opening tonight and running March 13 - April 20, 2008 at Eye Level Gallery in Halifax, NS.
Tonik elucidates that "RCMP is result of research I've been doing about the RCMP specifically and part of a larger interest about national identity. The RCMP is a paradox: a police who does serious law enforcement but is simultaneously tricked out in colonial regalia, steeped in childish nostalgia, and so damn earnest. It's hard not to be enamored but it's hard to hold in the laughter too."
RCMP, by Tonik Wojtyra
Rockonski, Toronto, 2008. 32pp, b&w, 12.7 x 20.3cm (5 x 8").
Numbered edition of 100. $5
The book is available for sale at Art Metropole in Toronto, Printed Matter in NYC, Colette in Paris, and Boekie Woekie in Amsterdam...
