Cancellation for me is this dynamic act: it is at once violent, an attack, an endgame to a struggle, but at the same time the mega opener. In the place of something cancelled there is only opportunity, only potential… For example, an event is cancelled, you have the night free; tour is cancelled, you have two weks to stay at home and work in your studio and sleep in your own bed and not lose money; exhibition is cancelled, now look at all of this time and material you have floating around… The bottom line is canceling as negating, as a way to remove to create potential, to create space. So after working for a while with the graphice of a literal “CANCELLED” stencil image, it was like, how do you cancel that? How does that get further negated?

In the style of Wolfgang Tillmans and Roe Ethridge, New York-based Asher Penn, born in Vancouver in 1982, captures the quotidian. As an anthology of artist books self-published by Asher Penn between 2004 and 2007 — an anthology that is effectively an artist book itself. Made between Providence, New York, Philadelphia and Vancouver, these ‘zine-like publications are rephotographed page by page on top of painted works that Penn was producing at the time of their re-publication. In rephotographing these original editions on the surface of recent work, Penn cleverly illustrates the creative vertigo capable of creeping up on artists while they look back at the artist that they have become. The artist books collected in this anthology include the following: 1. Just Say Maybe; 2. Go Fuck Yourself With Your Atomic Bomb; 3. Bad Hound, Buddha; 4. School; 5. Asher Mixtape Hell; 6. Elisa Penn Hero One; 7. Institutional Critique; 8. The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants; 9. Before And After; and 10. (Untitled).
