In recent weeks we have been receiving a good number of questions and interest about The Silent Academy pamphlet series, 2019-2020.
Here are some A’s to some of the Q’s:
The first sequence of pamphlets is being delivered in four installments. Each installment is released on a day of seasonal shift.
The first batch of three pamphlets was published on the Summer Solstice 2019.
The second batch of three pamphlets was published on the Autumn Equinox 2019.
The third batch of three pamphlets was published on the Winter Solstice 2019.
The fourth and final installment of pamphlets in this cycle will be delivered on the Spring Equinox 2020.
Each pamphlet delivers four poetic non-poems. These are seasonally tonal exercises that have occupied the mind and practice of artist/writer Andrew Shaw. You can call them ‘Fluxus-like’ exercises, but they are easier to live and apply than simple art-mind games. This is an exercise in turning life into art. Or art into life.
The Silent Academy pamphlets are an attempt to create art that doesn’t simply reflect the world. The aim of the Silent Academy pamphlets is to create a new world.
The Silent Academy pamphlets are not traditional chapbooks, nor are they art or poetry. These pamphlets are documents of art that have happened. Artifacts that exist in the wake of practice.
Each of the pieces has been written, lived, and then shared via publication. You are encouraged to also live the contents of the pamphlets.
The Silent Academy pamphlets are sold at the lowest possible price point. They are constructed from high-quality, recycled card and recycled twine.
Pamphlets are sold individually, or in discounted batches, tied with twine.
