SPOT and STAIN #00 by Stefanos Pavlakis, Tracy Mackenna and Edwin Janssen
17cm x 25cm, 24 pages, full colour printing, 2021
SPOT & STAIN is a series of publications that will be released intermittently when Stefanos Pavlakis and Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen work on projects together.
With Stefanos in Berlin and Tracy & Edwin in Glasgow, and working with full concentration and at a rapid pace, a collective investigation was kick-started into graffiti, language, translation, and public space and place. This first issue of SPOT & STAIN creates the conditions for the growth of a future project, and will inform their developing collaboration.
#00 has arisen out of the intensive virtual residency Swallows, initiated by Danica Maier and Louisa Chambers, that took place in April and May 2021. The residency brought together seven artists through a daily programme of discussion.
