“Joy Drury Coxs Stranger (2008) is a drawing punctuation study comprised of 125 ink drawings on Mylar that map out each period in an English translation of Albert Camus The Stranger. For the opening of Workshop, Cox has revisited the project through a new series of photographic prints. These enlargements, displayed alongside the original drawings, become new translations of each chapter-heading page in the original Camus text. Further removed from the original book, each print becomes a seemingly random combination of points and numbers, playing off the existential themes of the book.” – via Christian Berst Workshop
In conjunction with the exhibition, Conveyor Editions is pleased to launch our third artist book with Joy Drury Cox. The entire set, Old Man and Sea (2012), and Or, Some of the Whale (2013), and Stranger (2014), will also be available as a very limited edition.”
