Abstract or Description:

'Ghost' was my contribution to The Arca Project. The writer W G Sebald known for his method of mixing reality and fiction, image and text was used as a starting point. 16 international artists and 16 writers were sent exactly the same image asking them to interpret the image as they wished to (the only limitation was the uniform paper orientation and size). Each response was realized as a limited edition print, developed and made by Invisible Print Studio printed by Michael Hall, initiator of the project, along with writer Graeme Gilloch. An experiment in appropriation and interpretation, the mix of visual and textual responses displays the many different readings and associations triggered by the same image.
The work will be launched in the same county, Suffolk, which was the site of some of Sebalds most famous narrated journeys.

Artists and writers involved include Andrew Bick, Craig Burnett, Andrew Curtis, Karen Engle, Adam Fish, Emma Fraser, Lindsey Freeman, Graeme Gilloch, Steph Goodger, Oona Grimes, Tony Grisoni, Catherine Haines, Michael Hall, Molly Jarboe, Jaeho Kang, Naiza Khan, Jane Kilby, Abigail Lane, Richard Makin, Bob Matthews, Bruce McLean, Ana Milenkovic, Simon Patterson, Tony Plant, Daniel Rapley, Fabio La Rocca, Julian Rowe, Martina Schmid, Steven Scott, Allen Shelton, Erik Steinskog and Jo Stockham.
