Library Shelf Location 18.MANC
Publication Date 21 Sep 2015
 A book accompanying the exhibition Twelve by Melanie Manchot, her major new multi channel video installation exploring the intimate stories, rituals, repetitions and ruptures of lives spent in addiction and recovery.

Inspired by the visual acuity of renowned contemporary filmmakers, the work connects and collapses individual recollections. The book brings together a number of critical thinkers and writers to consider and debate a range of issues including correspondences between video art and therapy, the nature of decision making, creativity and authorship.

Twelve was commissioned by Portraits of Recovery. It is showing at Peckham Platform, London (22 May – 26 July 2015); Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (18 September – 1 November 2015); Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth (23 January – 20 March 2016); Towner, Eastbourne (16 April – 26 June 2016).
