About this exposition

en
A Printing Press of One’s Own (En egen trykkpresse) is a practical examination of the relationship between art and technique, hand and spirit, thought and printing ink. The project came out of an interest in the printed medium in a digital age. Book printing has been the dominant technology for setting and mass reproducing of the printed word from when Gutenberg popularized the technique in the 1450s, and until well into the 20th century. Thon Knutsen set out to search for a professional position which allowed her to combine an artistic approach to typography and graphic form with her technical insight and historical knowledge of book printing. She found Virginia Woolf. The canonised modernist author and the feminist icon worked in parallel with both her writing as artistic practice and as typesetter and printer in her own private printing press. Through in-depth close reading of Woolf's authorship, seen through the first-hand experience as typesetter and printer, Thon Knutsen has found new ways to read Woolf, and a direction for her own artistic and research-based practice. Thon Knutsen has recreated the short story that Woolf printed in her debut, The Mark on the Wall, in its whole, but with a new aesthetic appearance. She has done this with a method that Thon Knutsen claims must have been used by Woolf; the thought and the writing must have been influenced by the experience of setting and printing as a pendulum between the spirit that writes and the hand that sets.

En egen trykkpresse er en praktisk undersøkelse av forholdet mellom kunst og teknikk, hånd og ånd, tanke og trykksverte. Prosjektet sprang ut ifra en interesse for det trykte mediet i en digital tid. Boktrykk har vært den dominerende teknologien for setting og mangfoldiggjøring av det trykte ord fra Gutenberg populariserte teknikken på 1450-tallet, fram til langt inn på 1900-tallet. Thon Knutsen bega seg ut på leting etter en faglig posisjon, som lot henne kombinere en kunstnerisk tilnærming til typografi og grafisk form, med sin tekniske innsikt og historisk kunnskap om boktrykk. Hun fant Virginia Woolf. Den kanoniserte modernistiske forfatteren og det feministiske ikonet jobbet parallelt med skrivende kunstnerisk praksis og som setter og trykker i sitt eget trykkeri. Gjennom inngående nærlesning av Woolfs forfatterskap sett gjennom førstehåndserfaringen som setter og trykker, har Thon Knutsen funnet nye måter å lese Woolf på og en retning for sin egne kunstneriske og forskende praksis. Thon Knutsen har gjenskapt novellen Woolf debuterte med å trykke, The Mark on the Wall, i sin helhet, men i ny ham. Dette har hun gjort med en metode Thon Knutsen hevder må ha vært gjeldene hos Woolf, at erfaringen med setting og trykking har påvirket tanken og skriften, som en vekslende pendel mellom ånden som skriver og hånden som setter.
