CGP London is pleased to present a talk by artist Imogen Stidworthy and publisher Sandra Alvarez de Toledo, as part of the current exhibition 'Thinking Things'.
Stidworthy will discuss the ongoing preoccupation in her practice with the borders of language, and in particular how this interest has led her to the work of the French writer and educator Fernand Deligny, whose cartographic 'wander lines' are included in the exhibition. She will be joined in the talk by Sandra Alvarez de Toledo, who has written extensively on Fernand Deligny and published the three major books on his work, Cartes et lignes d'erre / Maps and Wander Lines. Traces du réseau de Fernand Deligny, 1969-1979 (2013), L'Arachnéen et autres textes (2008) and Š 'uvres (2007). (All of them published at éditions L'Arachnéen, www.editions-arachneen.fr)
