03 Nov Parallel Encyclopedia (reprint)
The wait is over! This is a reprint from the iconic book of Batia Suter originally published in 2007! If you searched for this book for years, you know this is a now or never occassion.
Batia Suter’s work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. ‘Parallel Encyclopedia’, which she conceived between 2004 and 2007, contains a precise composition of numerous images taken solely from other books. Significant underlying themes expressed in the Amsterdam-based, Swiss artist’s practice are the “iconification” and “immunogenicity” of old images, and the circumstances by which they assume or become charged with new associative values.
