RILEY HOOKER: SIT(UATION)

Riley Hooker presents an idea for a reading environment titled SIT(UATION). Inspired by the mutable and collective nature of slime molds, Riley blurs the parameters for what constitutes a book form—something that can be everchanging and can cradle the human body. SIT(UATION) is both a publication and a site for reading. Hooker untethers reading as an intellectual pursuit to a physical and social experience, which invites a collective approach to the reading and learning process.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Riley Hooker is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York. His work with artist collective House of LaDosha was featured in Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon at the New Museum in New York in 2018. The artist’s first solo show SPECIATION was at Knulp in Sydney in 2019 and was in a group exhibition Love Mussel curated by Water McBeer in 2020. In 2015, Hooker founded Façadomy, an intersectional publishing project focused on paradox and desire. Hooker’s work puts a distorted lens on reality by positioning elements of design, architecture, and popular culture in various states of transition, bringing forward the unstable subject and mutable nature of reality.
