Please join us on 28 June, 6-8pm for the launch of MIND READER by Ira Yonemura with a reading by Jessica Higgins.
'There is a Sufi story she was fond of that had the Charlie Chaplinesque figure of the Mullah Nasruddin in the middle of the night going round and round a lamppost on his knees. Asked what he was doing, he said he was looking for his keys. Where did you drop them? Oh, over there, the mullah says, indicating a spot a good distance away. So why are you looking for them here? There’s more light here, says the mullah.'
MIND READER is a new book and series of drawings by Ira Yonemura with a new text by Jessica Higgins. The book picks up where Light reading, gold gutter, failed delivery (Sunday’s Prints / Good Press, 2019) left off; drawings of books and the letter I, feeling the ground for something lost.
The Tenderbooks Imprint supports artists, writers, musicians and designers to create new work in diverse, experimental forms. A new book project by Dal Chodha and a catalogue in collaboration with The Estate of Moki Cherry will be released later in 2023.
