Playlist by Suzanne McClelland
Featuring Out of the Blue, a new poem by Mónica de la Torre
Playlist is an artist book made up of new drawings of influential voices culled from Suzanne McClelland’s memory—99 vocalists and 9 comedians—all identifying as women. Playlist presents a drawing on each page of the book where the gutter or binding forms a physical dialogue between the names which are paired solely on the formal qualities of these quick one-off "initials”—a shuffle of memories acting in the end as a a sort of self portrait. The artist continues to explore the gap between a name and a body, representation and experience as well as between speech and text.
