“Self Scrutiny” at The NY Art Book Fair

by Robbin on September 19, 2013

at The Center for  Book Arts‘ booth #Q45, 2nd floor 

PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave. LIC, NY 

Self Scrutiny, is  based on Istvan Orkeny’s story about a man and his mirror image who becomes independent from him.

For this artist book edition, I worked with cards that have been donated courtesy of the Brooklyn Museum Libraries.  By repeatedly writing/typing/painting and re-writing actual cards along with fictitious ones, all on handmade paper made from pulped cards, I was able to re-create both the storyline and my own commentary. The latter appears as notational references about simulacrum and hyper-reality.

Stop by the booth at the NY Art Book Fair this weekend!
