Publisher: Stephen Cheng
Hardcover books in outsized folio, 7 volumes, 488 pages, box size: 46.5x50.7.5 cm, books: varying sizes
Price: 649USD + shipping

"DEAR GOD is the second major work in the trilogy about America made by artist Amit Desai during his ten years on the road in the United States between 2001-2012. The collection combines Amit’s poetry with found photographs to form a series of seven modern illuminated prayer books depicting the journey from dark to light. The poems are printed with a variety of techniques, such as stenciling, hand writing, and photograms, and each is then collaged with photographs, photocopies, and ballpoint pen drawings. The first part of the trilogy, America Sutra, was published in 2012 and is a photographic journey through the United States; the third part, Songs of the Road, is a soundtrack of original text spoken and sung by the artist and will be released later this year."

Bownik - Disassembly

120 pages
305x240 mm / 12'' x 9.5''
offset printing
30 Euro / 40 $ + shipping

"The main role here is played by flowers, which the authors disassembles into parts using DIY tools and then reassembles in possibly unchanged form. For deconstruction purposes Bownik uses glues, adhesive tapes, ropes, precisely measuring the distances between the leaves, noting them in pencil on the leaves themselves and photographing them. The resulting images, informed by the still-life tradition, perfectly imitate and evoke that which has been subjected to a destructive process."

Darren O'Brien - Anywhere But Home

Anywhere But Home
Darren O'Brien
20 pages
Digital printing
£5 plus shipping

"When traveling it is always the differences between the current and previous country that become the focus of my attention. Differences in culture, differences in food and differences in lifestyle. I always imagine what it would be like to live there; to actually take the plunge and move, leaving everything behind and make it home. These thoughts leave an uneasy feeling buried deep within me. Part excitement, part apprehension and part fear. It was this idea that I explored when visiting Poland. The resulting collection of photographs explores my associations with home, the similarities and the subtle differences. This is not a visual record of Poland as a country, merely my brief experiences within it - Darren O'Brien, 2013"
