Publisher Statement:NOVEL at Bergen Kunsthall Upstairs For the Upstairs residency, NOVEL (Alun Rowlands & Matt Williams) will host events, readings, screenings and the dispersion of a new publication. Upstairs will be cast in the yellow glow of Mark Leckey’s Untitled (Sodium Light), 2014 and filled by the sound and textual image of Hannah Black’s Power Cut 1970, 2012. The NOVEL archive covers the walls of Upstairs as a locus for reading and the fictioning of a scenario. NOVEL asks us to think of writing as something distinct from information, as at least one realm of cultural production that is exempt from the encompassing obligation to communicate.

In Oslo NOVEL Upstairs launch, 8 December 2016, 19:00 at Kunstnernes Hus, as part of Bergen Kunsthall in Oslo, presenting highlights of current programme with Knut Henrik Henriksen and screening of Moyra Davey’s Hemlock Forest, 2016. … NOVEL is an editorial and curatorial project, publishing artists writing and texts that oscillates between modes of fiction and poetry. NOVEL acts in-between the potential performance of a script, and the indeterminate transcript of the event. The journal hosts a cacophony of voices that coalesce around writing as a core material of a number of artists exploring language and the speculative force of fiction. Here, art and writing is an apparatus for knowledge capture, writing as parallel practice, writing as political fiction, renegotiating unfulfilled beginnings or incomplete projects.
