Catalogue: It Will Seem a Dream is the first collection of art writing by the British artist Juan Cruz. Cruz’s artistic practice – which spans video, performance and installation – has always been intimately concerned with language, and with translation in particular. The collected texts cover Cruz’s entire career to date, and have been retrieved from works produced in an array of now obsolete formats: audio cassette, MiniDisc, MiniDV, Hi8, Quark and ClarisWorks. Somewhere between an exhibition and its catalogue, an artist’s book and a reader, Catalogue: It Will Seem a Dream clears a meandering speculative path through words and images. An essential resource for anyone interested in experimental art writing today.
