Drawing Room Confessions
ISSUE #1 / Charles Avery
(…) An Islander would say that consistency is local truth, that authenticity is a place, an old ruin, somewhere off the old road out of town. I don't think a system needs to be pure.

Made of words and exchanges, with no images, Drawing Room Confessions is open to diverse practices and voices. It is named after a game played at the end of the nineteenth century in England and France, which consisted of a fixed questionnaire answered by players to reveal their tastes, aspirations and personalities.

Each section follows a set of rules, only the players change, as interviewers from a wide range of fields contribute to a portrait of the artist at a certain time.
