THIS IS WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE LIKE THIS
Art Metropole (2005)
The book contains 58 text works, each a language-based drawing of a specific moment, object, action, or state, and tour through the bed, the body, the garden, and the street. The drawings were originally shown in Spring 2003 at CANADA, NYC.
The book also includes ten reproduced landscape photographs taken by Wallace Nutting (1861-1941) in New York State and England between 1905 and 1915.
Ellwood’s work uses language as a means for creating narratives and indexes in various formats, including video, books, posters, cards, wall works, and temporary installations. Typeset or handwritten on the wall, the words double as drawings, using language as a stand-in, and freestanding narratives, gleaned from hermetic and social experiences.
