Maurice Carlin

Irish, born 1974

Manchester-based Maurice Carlin mixes printing processes with performance and site-specific work to facilitate dialogues between digital and physical experiences. In a 2013 piece Performance Publishing, for instance, Carlin spent three months in a warehouse exhibition center and made analogue transfer prints from the walls and floor throughout the space, which he installed to cover much of the room and also scanned and published in a stream online. “My own personal interest is in a more fluid conception of the artwork,” he says, “existing across a number of platforms, both digital and analogue, something which can be experienced in different ways at different times.” His best-known work is probably The Self-Publishers, a project in which he periodically swept Manchester’s photocopy shops and collected unwanted copies and printouts left on the glass or thrown out nearby—discarded items that included everything from advertisements to personal notes, which he enlarged and published in a journal.
