[4.12.05][Andrew Gallix] DETOUR IN THE ORTHODOXY: METRONOME PRESS INTERVIEW Soon to be published in 3:AM: an interview with Clementine Deliss of Metronome Press who claims that "fiction within art practice might be the way forward". Here's a short extract to whet your appetite:
"The intention has been to create a detour in the orthodoxy of a person's work whether they are an artist, critic, or writer. There is no point in replicating the same identity that one carries as a professional within the context of Metronome Press. Metronome is there to create a short circuit between professionals working in different fields of aesthetic practice, and in many cases, in different urban locations... I am interested in experiments related to interpretation. Metronome is an interpretational tool rather than a vehicle for the promotion of artists' works. Metronome Press has a similar attitude. It has not been set up within a literary field, but within the context of writing produced in relation to art production. Our challenge is the art world, and its discourse, not the literary world. We do not deny that visual artists can produce good literature, nor do we exclude the input of writers within our framework, but our main area of investigation is research and experimentation in art practice."
