The Wayward Canon

The Wayward Canon began in 2019 as a catalogue for Mark Aerial Waller’s retrospective exhibition at Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (CAAM), Gran Canaria, Spain. With the onset of coronavirus, the publication uncoupled from its format to become a set of critical texts and possibilities for interaction. The back pages can be cut up to make a flip-book, a musical score is included to reenact the sense of one of Waller’s legendary Wayward Canon events.

Contributors include curator and writer Mike Sperlinger (LUX / Oslo National Academy of the Arts), as well as members of the former art collective and space France Fiction, Lorenzo Cirrincione and Marie Bonnet, with Jennifer Teets. The book also comprises an interview between Gemma Medina Estupiñan (independent curator/ Van Abbe Museum) and Waller, detailing the artist’s thought processes and potential for political engagement in meta-cinematic practice.

Bilingual English / Castellano.
