Dear X, I am back, writing, thinking of you. And since you already know what I want to say, isn't how I say it what matters, really?...

‘To C.L.S.’, ‘For A.L.M.’, ‘In Memory of J.V.C.’ – Starting from his collection of three-letter dedications, Robin Waart’s new artist book "Dedication(s)" looks at public yet hidden modes of address. While these dedications appear in printed books, they remain private, intimate allusions between author and intended recipient. The project infers the strange position of the reader who encounters these cryptic dedications, which perhaps get in the way of—or better clarify?—the relationship between author and audience. Waart’s project questions the relationship between a work and the reality in which it comes about, and why, and for whom, we make what we make.

In celebration of the launch of R.R.W.'s 'Dedication(s),' Robin Waart will be in conversation with Nicole Kaack, followed by a reading by Brian Kuan Wood. Both presentations will be accompanied by a scenography by Jennifer Gelardo.

The event will be followed by a Q&A and book "initialing." This event is free and open to the public.

The publication of 'Dedication(s)' has been made possible through support from Stichting Stokroos, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Noord-Holland, Stichting Niemeijer Fonds, Hinderrust Fonds and Harten Fonds. New work by Robin Waart is supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
