Ann Woo, Scenes from parents’ home, Oi Man Estate, 2016, photo series

Dear reader,

We wholeheartedly welcome you to the second volume of Stationary, shaped by Malak Helmy and Christina Li. Original contributions by Andrew Hugill with James Langdon, Kevin Killian, Haitham Wardany, and Amir Zuabi—each accompanied by an image in a new photographic series by Ann Woo—will arrive in your inbox bi-weekly through March.

Against the backdrop of collective exhaustion, the volume slows at the entrance to explore a literature of self-recovery. The four installments burrow into fantasies and venture down wormholes to access the potential of our own irreverence. Through writing, these contributors intuit a future not necessarily ahead but inside.

Haitham Wardany responds to our invitation regarding overproduction and self-withdrawal by revisiting passages in an unfinished story by Franz Kafka, “The Burrow” (1924), copied directly from the digital version provided by aaaaarg.fail.

Stationary 2 is a follow-up to the first printed issue in 2015, edited by Heman Chong and Christina Li and distributed hand-to-hand. The digital volume continues Stationary’s desire to offer space for texts on things, ideas, figures, places, and moments that fall outside their writers’ usual creative practices.

We hope you enjoy the read(s)!

Stationary is a collection of stories disseminated by word of mouth. Loosely forged as a recess from one’s productive practice, we invite artists, curators, and writers to take stock of, elaborate on, and chart their obsessions, fascinations, and influences within a suspended moment afforded by the publication’s pages.
