Something Some things Something else
Jeroen Peeters

‘My desire is to make a piece with nothing.’ This quest inspired the performance artist Mette Edvardsen to make a series of solo works, from Black to No Title and We to be to oslo. The trail of booklets, postcards and ephemera published in their margins provided writer Jeroen Peeters with a particular lense to look into Edvardsen’s detailed world. The encounter yielded three collections for Mette Edvardsen, essays that honour the literary tradition of composing with fragments and loose ends in search of something. Trying to do as little as possible so that a sense of something else might occur – what’s the space of reading such writing?

Jeroen Peeters is an essayist, dramaturg and performer working across the media of writing, not-writing, performance and publication. He writes about art and matters such as ecologies of attention, material literacy, readership, commoning and sustainable development.
