Book Release:
THIS I THIS THING by
Isoje Chou
FUFU/PEOPLE WITH is pleased to announce the publication of the Artist Book, THIS I THIS THING by Isoje Chou. 

ABOUT THE BOOK THIS I THIS THING:
"In 2009 a curious conversation began about anxiety and authenticity. Thrown in was the subject ‘cosmophagy’. Who were the folks having this conversation? It was a conversation between a photographic negative of my face and an unrepresented voice. The conversation became a video animation, THIS THING, and subsequently lost to a botched computer. I had the primary parent stills, and these became, in 2019, the book, THIS I THIS THING. The project in print form became an opportunity for me to work with an idea of the photographic negative, which has always seemed to me like drawings made using very soft lead pencils (6B and above)..." - excerpt, Foreword by the artist

THIS I THIS THING is about form and anxiety as content in the photographic self-portrait, and the question of home as elusive space. 


ABOUT THE ARTIST
Isoje Chou Isoje is interested in the position of the thing, etc, in the larger scheme of things, at the very least in this project. In 2018, she established the visual arts outfit Fufu/People With with an eye towards the publication of independent ideas.

FUFU/PEOPLE WITH OPPORTUNITIES is a visual arts ideas outfit established by the artist in 2018. Named after West Africa’s hefty staple, FUFU is also well, fufu: fickle, flighty, even delirious.

FUFU/PEOPLE WITH is an extension of Fufu Press an independent visual arts publishers.
