Join us at Printed Matter / St Marks Friday, November 5th for a sidewalk launch of Keren Cytter’s new zine Dictionary for Mayflies!
Dictionary for Mayflies is loosely about an artist’s offbeat musings while living in NY; its syntax and composition incorporate language that turns text into art. Short and prose-like, Cytter harnesses conceptual writing and imagery to produce a witty and dark stream of consciousness that is relatable but also welcomes interpretation and introspection.
Keren Cytter creates films, performances, drawings and photographs on topics of social alienation, language representation and the function of individuals in predetermines cultural systems through experimental modes of storytelling and human perception. Selected solo exhibitions include: Winterthur KunstMuseum (2020); CCA Tel Aviv (2019); Museion Bolzano (2019); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, (2015); Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2014); and Show Real Drama, Tate Modern Oil Tanks, London (2012.) Cytter was awarded the Guggenheim fellowship (2021.)
Killer Dentist Press is an experimental publisher based in NYC that focuses on conceptual writing and off-site exhibits with a focus on text-based art.
