    I See Words, I Hear Voices

    Dora García and Chantal Pontbriand

    Mad Marginal Cahier #4: I See Words, I Hear Voices brings together essays by international authors that develop different threads pertaining to artist Dora García's practice. In her research, she explores—through the figures of James Joyce and Robert Walser—deviant literature, exploded language, the unconscious, and the notion of exile as inherent to artistic practice. García is currently examining voice-hearing and other extrasensory perceptions. Mad Marginal Charts, an abstract mapping of references central to her idea of marginality as an artistic position, marks her trajectory in this new cycle of works, which has been featured and elaborated in exhibitions in 2014 and 2015.

    The echoes of the world, those one hears badly or rarely, are “exhibited” in a context to be experienced as much as watched, as much as read. The text becomes palpable, and undoubtedly inscribed in the flesh of the world. Through the act of seeing, the text becomes voice. —Chantal Pontbriand Copublished with the Oslo Academy of Fine Art at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Fonderie Darling, Punkt Ø, and the Power Plant

    The Inadequate

    Dora García

    Mad Marginal is a project started by artist Dora García in November 2009. Mad Marginal wants to research a form of artistic practice, using the tradition of antipsychiatric and anti-institutional movements as a prism to look at the work of artists who have either consciously chosen to remain outsiders or been defined as outsiders by others.

    The publication appears in the form of cahiers. Mad Marginal Cahier #2: The Inadequate is the second cahier, presented as the publication for the Spanish Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale 2011.
