My Epidemic (texts about my work and the work of other artists)
The first anthology of writings by the French artist Lili Reynaud Dewar, from 2003 to 2015, incl. essays on fellow artists (Lothar Hempel, François Curlet, Caroline Mesquita, John Smith, Verena Dengler, among others), writers (Guillaume Dustan), exhibitions reviews, scripts from her artist talks and a treatise on teaching.
The provocative variety of subjects and ideas addressed by Reynaud Dewar in My Epidemic stresses the anti-generalising approach she is now famous for in her sculpture and installation work – her obsession with how much difference differences make. This book also retraces how her writing style has developed during these twelve years, gaining in visibility and distinctiveness. It demonstrates the centrality of the role writing has come to play in her artistic practice. My Epidemic in this sense reads almost like a biography. [publisher’s note]
