Voss-Knude’s contribution in Torrent and his exhibition at Counter Space unveil access to the artist’s thought processes. Torrent magazine at large examines how previously unpublished documents come to represent the circumferential sphere around conceiving and realizing works. These source materials hint at procedures, subtexts, informational noise, or potential extra-narratives of artistic practice.
