Female Orgasm: A codex of sorts, after Ursula K Le Guin is a hand screen-printed artists’ book by Emily Floyd produced in collaboration with Experimental Jetset, Amsterdam, published and printed by Negative Press, Melbourne, with text supplement by Anneke Jaspers. A typographic response to Le Guin’s Kesh word BANHE, meaning “acceptance, inclusion, insight, understanding; female orgasm. To include; to comprehend; to have orgasm (female).” The project belongs to a body of works that retrieve Le Guin’s language from an indefinitely deferred future, activating its revolutionary desire in the present. Available from April 20.
