This diminutive book is published in relation to a series of performances and an exhibition: ‘Things on a Table’ by Uta Eisenreich and Eva Meyer-Keller with Katrin Hahner at Pact Zollverein, Essen, and ‘A Play’ by Eisenreich with Meyer-Keller and James Langdon, shown at Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam. The departure point is Gertrude Stein’s modernist text, ‘Objects Lie on a Table’ (1922). The exhibition takes form as a mural conceived with graphic designer James Langdon. Unlike the experience of the stage piece, where elements appear in a timeline, the book offers an excess of elements – signs, colours, fragments, and texts – to assemble and construct meaning.
