Re-imagined books, fragmented text and dislocated dialogues are bought together for the TÖNE Festival in a three-part installation; The Library, The Conversation and The Page which play with breaking the linear arrangements of form and meaning.  Through cut-up, disjointed and disrupted narratives the work questions assumed, familiar and historical structures and the peculiar status of truth.  Amie Rai has been awarded TÖNE’s Postgraduate commission through an Open Call and will collaborate with Ethan Shilling to realise aspects of the work.
