Borrowed Lady: Martine Syms is the third in SFU Galleries Critical Reader Series. Edited by Amy Kazymerchyk, the book expands from Syms' exhibition, Borrowed Lady, held at the Audain Gallery from October 13 to December 10, 2016.
This publication unfolds the formal and conceptual inheritances that are operative in Syms' practice. A new text by Christina Sharpe offers a close reading of the visual and aural gestures in the exhibition; a transcriptions of Syms' performative lecture, Misdirected Kiss, cites a range of borrowed artistic, literary and theoretical references for further study; and a poetic text by artist Diamond Stingily expresses her own familial inheritances and illustrate Syms' relational and dialogic methodology.
