Excited to see this book in person soon! Congrats you lot!
So excited to annouce the release of our book, Queen of Tsawassen!
Commonality of place and photographic sensibility combine in Queen of Tsawwassen, an edited collection of images showcasing the work of five emerging Canadian photographers.
The title is a reference to one of the original BC Ferries which operated between Vancouver Island and the mainland – a unique region of the Pacific Northwest where much of the book’s imagery was captured.
Curated by twelvebooks, and designed and published by Inventory, Queen of Tsawwassen is a 120-page, hardcover, clothbound edition of 500, featuring the work of Ali Bosworth, Seth Fluker, Jennilee Marigomen, Dan Siney and Chris Taylor.
• 120 Pages

Much of Robarts’ work issues from what he calls his “continuous exploration of the transformational effects of time”—be it his paintings of melting cubes or popsicles, or his sculptures comprising objects of urban life that he finds around the city and reclaims. Through it all, he reveals what happens during the recess of time between a given now and a not-too-distant then. indeed, the very word recess is particularly resonant for Robarts. This is evident not only in his selection of the term as the title of his current exhibition at Secret 16, but also in his duel investigation and exploitation of the term’s manifold definitions in the work he here presents.
Robarts’ exhibit comprises two discrete scraps of chain-link fencing mounted on a wall, which he discovered lying unused near his studio in Brooklyn, New York. The empty spaces between the fences’ wire-netting are inlayed with a motley of balls—tennis, bouncy, base-, and so on—which spill out onto the floor below. Robarts collected these from the parks and playgrounds around his studio as well, picking them up and prizing them for their one-time, now-exhausted significance.

Via Aaron Rose
In 1965, Sol LeWitt wrote fellow sculptor Eva Hesse a four-page letter of encouragement, urging her to stop doubting herself and to simply continue making her work. Despite the fact that some would consider their friendship unlikely, the two sculptors were close friends and wrote to each other frequently about their ideas, work, and personal lives from 1960 until Hesse’s death ten years later. Often quoted, LeWitt’s letter has become a source of inspiration and a vote of confidence for many artists all over the world.
For this film Aaron Rose worked with Tim Armstrong from Rancid to remake LeWitt’s words into a bold and boisterous song. This project started with Tim taking the text, and reconfiguring it into a formal song structure with verses, bridges and a chorus. He then put together a group of friends and let it rip in the studio. Once the song was done, they researched specific works of LeWitt’s that would animate well and passed them off to animator Thomas McMahan (along with a group of highly talented co-animators) to set them in motion. The end result is a lyric video like none other. A true testament to the brilliance of Sol LeWitt, sent through a 21st Century filter to create something that resonates as strongly today as the original works did when they were created.
