By Stuart Bailey
An exhibition in Culturgest, Porto provided the seventh occasion for Stuart Bailey to show a group of artefacts whose only shared connection was that they had appeared somewhere in the pages of ‘Dot Dot Dot’ – a magazine which he has edited since its conception in 2000. The publication plays with the idea of inverting the regular hierarchy of this magazine where texts are generally treated as primary and images secondary. It contains a leporello reproduction of the exhibition wall with all the 43 artefacts, followed by subsequent reproductions of 43 previously published Dot Dot Dot articles, systematically presented as captions of these artefacts. Playful as it is probing, this book with its distinctive logic and design forms another element in a ongoing, particular graphic adventure.
