Subotincic, Natalija . Never Speak With Your Mouth Full (Three Volumes in Slipcase). Winnipeg, Manitoba: Publisher: Department of Architecture Press, University of Manitoba; 1st edition (2008), 2008. First Edition, First Printing. ISBN: 9781894586283. pp. 31; 32 pages; [24] leaves of plates. Replete with black and white and colour illustrations. Three staplebound illustrated volumes housed in clamshell case measuring 29 x 23 x 2 cm. The books are arranged so that they form the title when laid in their case in descending order. Titles of the first two volumes are as follows: Vol. I: “Penumbra: expanding the Museum of Jurassic Technology”.; Vol. II: “Freud at the dining table : an architectural act: Part II, Act V, Scene 5”. Vol. III comprises exclusively of 24 numbered pages of black and white and colour leaves. Exhibition catalogue housed in an elegantly designed box with three books containing photographs of animal bones gathered from seven years of the artist’s meals neatly embedded in the surface of a hand-built table; drawings and commentary about Sigmund Freud’s study in Vienna “Freud at the Dining Table,” described as an “architectural act”; and Subotincic’s architectural work on an expanded Museum of Jurassic Technology. Her collaborators on the museum project — the artist prefers that term rather than “clients” — are founders David Wilson and Diana Drake Wilson, the famous subjects of Lawrence Weschler’s best-selling Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonder. No detectable flaws, all contents remain bright, clean, and unmarked; in fine condition and housed in fine clamshell case still in original shrink-wrap. As new. Exceedingly scarce, with no known extant copies available in commerce at time of cataloguing. Not in Peel, LAC/BAC. “Natalija Subotincic was an artist and professor of architecture at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada from 2007-2010. Her research and creative work explores the realm between the psyche and physical space, questioning how we individually and collectively construct, experience, and dwell within this territory. Her book “Never Speak With Your Mouth Full”, DoA Press (2008) conjoins her personal forays into collecting, an interpretation of Sigmund Freud’s work environment/collection, and the design for an expansion to the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City, California”.
