Untitled (hot pink) (2013)

Accompanying the exhibition Distinguished from the melee of user comments and structurally misogynist chat rooms harbouring rapid-fire trolls, Woodpecker Projects published Untitled (hot pink), 2013; an artist book by Saskia Te Nicklin.


The publication is paraphrasing the book Chromophobia by David Batchelor. The central argument of Chromophobia is that a chromophobic impulse – a fear of corruption or contamination through color – lurks within much Western cultural and intellectual thought. Chromophobia was published by Reaktion Books – Focus on Contemporary Issues. Saskia Te Nicklin has isolated and reprinted, using the exact same layout, all the words for colours in Batchelor’s book. The book belongs to our magazine line: The eighteenth/nineteenth issue of Woodpecker Magazine (formerly known as Papi Magazine).
