Momentary Monument I - The Swamp
Rare copy of Lara Favaretto first artist’s book, related to her project “Making Worlds / Fare Mondi” exhibited at 53rd Venice Biennial and curated by Daniel Birnbaum. Including texts by Daniel Birnbaum and Chris Sharp, this publication expands the project shown at the Venice Biennial. It is divided into three parts: the first is a prologue, explaining how a swamp is created; the central part tells the stories of twenty disappeared individuals, characters such as Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who was lost in sea in 1975; and an epilogue describing the change in the surrounding landscape of the swamp, which doesn’t quite look the same.
