Hole is an ongoing collaboration between Colleen Asper and Marika Kandelaki. Hole has been making holes since 2012. What constitutes the Hole? A process of perverting the logic that marks a hole as lack. Hole exists everywhere the political outplace is marked, as proof that every enclosure produces a squirt. Hole is the errant subset included in all sets, the negation of any count that claims the whole. Hole is not a sulky subject mourning the misplaced essence. Hole is a force indifferent to the naming that is foreclosure under the patriarchal law. We have united under the identity of Hole—the contradiction to the wholeness, the division of phallic totality—and we hope you join us.
Hole ABCs are narrative and take the form of the Dictionary of the Hole: 26 synonyms for hole each with an accompanying text and letterform. The texts are stories, poems, epistolaries, and plays that demonstrate historical and fantastical possibilities for the hole, and the ideas in each text determine the form of the letters. The letters are imaged by photographing speculative architectures in which our bodies are a primary material.
