Andy Holden — Collected Free Labour: Blog Interviews 2010 - 2021
Published by Slimvolume, 2021
Collected Free Labour: Blog Interviews 2010-2021 is a new book by artist Andy Holden that contains selected extracts from interviews undertaken between 2010 - 2021. Previously existing online, central fragments of these have been rearranged thematically and intercut with a new conversation between the artist and the book’s editor, Tyler Woolcott.
Speaking in 2021 on his ongoing self-reflective practice, Holden states that: “It’s urgent and perhaps more acceptable to be sincere as a regular mode of being.” This is especially evident within “the climate of intense sincerity dominated by identity politics, moral certainty and climate uncertainty.”
Collected Free Labour: Blog Interviews 2010-2021 is published to coincide with British Art Show 9, an exhibition that includes Holden’s work and travels from Aberdeen to Wolverhampton, Manchester and Plymouth during 2021 and 2022.
The book was launched on 9 September 2021 at Bold Tendencies to celebrate our new public commission by the artist, In Praise of Folly (2021).
