Description: “Going wrong” is a detective novel by Ruth Rendell transformed manually by Tanja Smit into a synopsis for a horror film, by means of a working process of self help with a wink.

History: A few years ago I found the book at a dutch flee market. I bought it attracted by it´s suggestive cover and title, the writer was unknown to me then. I was having a hard time and I sensed that “Going wrong” could give me courage and space to name the bad; look it in the eyes; meditate on it and blow it up to the point that it would become ridiculous. I would use my drawing and writing to perform an act of.... exorcism.

Process: I started to read the novel and while I red I chose on each page the adverb or adjective with the worst meaning. Then I marked the white space around the word with various lines of red ink, transforming it into an amorphic shape, resembling vaguely some animal or lost tooth.
After that I wrote a Spanish translation of the selected word in an empty space near to it. Big part of my life at that moment evolved around that language and I wanted it to have a space in the book too.
The last action was to compose a short phrase, formed by a pronoun, a verb and the selected adverb or adjective, which I wrote on top of the page. 

Residue: Now “Going wrong” has become a synopsis of a horror film: The phrases above each page form the senario and the little red monsters downwards the storyboard, subtitled in Spanish. A movie that  starts bad, continues worse and ends dreadful. I feel much better now, haha.
