Katie Cuddon: Without a Sentence Without a Name

Katie Cuddon: Without a Sentence Without a Name
Library Shelf Location 18.CUDD
Publication Date 2014

Without a Sentence Without a Name presents new work by Katie Cuddon together with a selection of poems and short stories by Lydia Davis, Russell Edson, Martha Ronk and Diane Williams.

The relationship between Cuddon’s gouache clay sculptures with their distinctively fingered surface, her inscrutable drawings/collages and the work of these writers is explored in a vivid and impressionistic essay by artist and writer, Elizabeth Manchester.

Disrupted by different voices and dramatic shifts in syntax, Manchester’s essay teases out the close associations between Cuddon’s work and language/text; their mutual alliance and denial.

What we learn about Cuddon’s beguiling creations is that if we must ascribe definitions, this work is to understand what is fickle, irrational, and illogical about human consciousness, thought, and behaviour.

As part of BALTIC Self-Publishing Artists' Market 2018 the Women Artists of the North East Library had a one-day residency in BALTIC Library researching the collection for records of exhibitions and projects by women artists associated with the North East. The documents found were pulled out of the collections to form a new online reading list of BALTIC Library. This also contributed to the Women Artists North East Library’s research.

This book now forms part of that reading list.
