The book Agnes Nedregård, Performance Works: The Big Toe presents the ten-year performance career of Bergen visual artist Agnes Nedregård.

Agnes Nedregård, Performance Works: The Big Toe looks at Nedregård’s practice from a diversity of perspectives and media, including a photo essay studying horizontality/verticality and bent/straight lines. Using Henri Lefebvre and Georges Bataille as a point of departure, this photo essay focuses on Nedregård’s subversion of vertical erectility and the artist’s counter-agenda of explosive bendability.

Book contributors include Amelia Jones, Bob Dickinson, Branko Boero Imwinkelried, Olivier Lussac and Tommy Olsson.
The 150-page, full-color publication was designed by New Collectivism, the design section of NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst).

Edited by Branko Boero Imwinkelried, the book was published by Dimanche Rouge and sponsored by the Norwegian Arts Council and the Bergen City Council.

Upcoming book launches, talks, performances:
London: Swedenborg Society, 14th of November 2015
Paris: Palais de Tokyo, 24th of February 2016
