First comprehensive monograph of the Swedish queer and feminist performance artist.
Holes Dug, Rocks Thrown is the first comprehensive presentation of Line Skywalker Karlström’s work. It documents a practice, that over a period of more than twenty years have been committed to « queer feminist world making » using a performative and embodied approach. Correspondingly with Skywalker Karlström’s understanding of art as a chaotic and associative knowledge production, which unfolds as a collaborative and ongoing conversation, their book has become a bastard monograph, which describes an artistic practice through its relationships and its flock. For the book, Skywalker Karlström has invited a number of colleagues to engage in conversations with them departing from selected works and jointly attempt to expand upon the strengths and qualities of queer and feminist artistic strategies. In addition to an extensive documentation of works, drawings and ephemera, Holes Dug, Rocks Thrown contains a number of inserts with works by other artists, which have informed Skywalker Karlström’s art practice.
