Five writers respond to Clare Goodwin's painting Dennis and Denise
(2018), offering narrative foils to Goodwin's visual language. Dennis and Denise is neither described nor explained, but serves as a catalyst for literary experimentation
. The texts, in turn, illustrate the painting's wealth of implicit meaning (texts by Tony Grisoni, Rebecca Geldard, Chris Fite-Wassilak, Frances Loeffler, Aoife Rosenmeyer, J. Emil Sennewald).
Clare Goodwin (born 1973 in Birmingham, lives and works in Zurich) is a British artist and curator. Along with her studio/painting
practice, Goodwin is interested in the role of the artist as curator – “curating around practice”. As co-founder of K3 Project Space Zurich (with Sandi Paucic), Goodwin has initiated many exhibitions in Switzerland and abroad.
