Emily Roysdon & Ian White have produced a limited edition print for Chisenhale Gallery inspired by the cover of a collection of Latin American gay fiction, My Deep Dark Pain Is Love. It is made to accompany their performance, Interim, which took place at the gallery on 22 April 2010 in which the book's title was one of three sentences written directly onto the gallery wall.
Physically devised on site over the 10 days prior to its performance, Interim borrowed the title of the series for which it was commissioned and attempted to make content of what the artists described as ‘this nothing that might be what is otherwise in-between’. Interim was the first collaboration between Ian White and Emily Roysdon in which both appeared as artists.
Emily Roysdon (1977) is a New York and Stockholm based interdisciplinary artist and writer. Her work is invested in language, memory, collectivity and the processes of history and she uses video, photography, text and performance to that aim. She is editor and co-founder of the queer feminist journal and artist collective LTTR. Roysdon's work has been shown at Participant Inc. (NY); Generali Foundation (Vienna); New Museum (NY): Power Plant (Toronto); and Studio Voltaire (London). Her videos have been screened at Whitechapel Gallery (London); Arsenal: Institut fur Film and Videokunst (Berlin); The Kitchen (NY); and at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. Her writings have been published in numerous books and magazines, including Cabinet Magazine, the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest, and Women in Performance: a Journal of Feminist Theory. Roysdon completed the Whitney Museum of Independent Study Program in 2001 and an Interdisciplinary MFA at UCLA in 2006. For six months in 2008 she was resident at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden (IASPIS). She is a recipient of a 2008 Art Matters grant and the 2009 Franlin Furnace grant and she is a contributing member and sometimes performer with the band MEN.
