Julia Meltzer & David Thorne
Julie Meltzer and David Thorne’s project for Fillip 8 is the second of an ongoing series in which artists and writers are asked to use the format of the index to recontextualize the content of an issue of Fillip. Meltzer and Thorne’s index refigures a contemporary art discourse though the language of affect and feeling. Deliberately misrepresenting the information it claims to describe, their index within an index is only slightly contained within its own dislocated internal order.
