Abstract (English)

"The aim was to undo the typical succinct form of the interview, in order to probe the complexity of Ring’s ideas and the way in which questions and answers transform through repetition. The questions treated the topics of art and politics, teaching, friendship, love, memory, and Ring’s own practice of creative writing.

Over the seven days the interview became a conversation, and the result was not a portrait of Ring, but of a friendship, of a shared territory. The interview took place six months before Ring’s death, an urgent time that seeped into the project. The book is partially a transcript of the interview in 2009. Redacted significantly, the spacing of the page holds the time and space of the interview, “keeping the time and rhythm” of the event. It becomes a score for the reader, with focus on the pacing and gaps between the written and the unwritten." -- Artist's website.
