Fiction. Art. This is the first compilation of an ongoing serial comic about Fortuna. Allegedly "the greatest super hero in the world" she suffers from a bad case of ennui and as such is more or less ineffective. In this limited off-set edition, complete with a letter press cover, Fortuna goes jogging, comes home from work, pays $50 for a singing goldfish and gets to the bottom of a relentless, wandering leak.
Caroline Picard is an artist, writer, publisher, and curator who explores the figure in relation to systems of power through on-going investigations of inter-species borders, how the human relates to its environment and what possibilities might emerge from upturning an anthropocentric world view. Her writing has appeared in publications like ArtForum (critics picks), Flash Art International, Hyperallergic, Paper Monument, The Seen, and e-flux's live blog. In 2014 she was the Curatorial Fellow at La Box, ENSA in France, and became a member of the SYNAPSE International Curators' Network of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin in 2015. She is the Executive Director of The Green Lantern Press—a nonprofit publishing house and art producer in operation since 2005—and Co- Director of Sector 2337, a hybrid artspace/bar/bookstore in Chicago. www.sector2337.com.Author City: CHICAGO, IL USA
