The Roll Of The Artist Volume One
“From political ornament to bottom feeder, narcissist to voyeur, victim to culprit, the role of the artist is ridiculous, and one I take very seriously”. With this, Kasia Fudakowski launches herself into an autobiographical catalogue, a rolling definition of how her role as an artist has evolved up to this point. The texts in the book trace around fifteen years of art making and thinking, using both anecdotal fragments from her own life and those of others she admires. As such, it offers an opportunity to take stock of Fudakowski’s ongoing, journal-like body of work while raising questions about the role of art and the role and responsibility of the artist towards herself and towards society.
