Daniel Canty – Worldlines

The current Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) London Residency holder Daniel Canty, presents Worldlines, a limited edition booklet where he dwells on the invention of self and writing.

Interweaving his personal history with the mythical matters of a universal literature, Daniel Canty exposes the ways in which literature amplifies our temporal bandwidth, tuning in to strange emotional frequencies in the hope that they can bring us closer to ourselves. Worldlines inventories some of the mysterious coordinates where this earth’s meridians and parallels intersect with the tangents of fiction.

Daniel’s book launch will be at the London Art Book Fair. He will also be holding an intimate reading at the CALQ London Residency Studio. Further details below:
