Stripping the meaning of “publication” to its etymological roots of “issuing forth” or “the act of making public”, 3-ply has framed the Biennial bookstore as a site for performative publication and discursive agency. Conversational exchange amongst mobilized visitors and observers (framed as simultaneously readers and authors) mutates into a series of performances and texts that accumulate to offer alternatives to the conventional Biennial publications, in the form of a speculative guidebook and parallel catalogue. The Biennial bookstore project Footnotes is presented by Liang Luscombe, Lisa Radford & Fayen d’Evie(3-Ply) with Yekatarinburg bookshop Йозеф Кнехт.
Secondary part of the project Appendix 1 (The reconstitution of a long term horizon) was presented at Gertrude Studios 2015, Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne.
