Nina Katchadourian


Delighting within the feel and appear of books, conceptual artist Nina Katchadourian's playful photographic sequence proves that books' covers—or extra in particular, their spines—can converse volumes. during the last 20 years, Katchadourian has perused libraries around the globe, determining, stacking, and photographing groupings of 2, 3, 4, or 5 books in order that their titles will be learn as sentences, developing whimsical narratives from the textual content came across there. Thought-provoking, shrewdpermanent, and from time to time laugh-out-loud humorous (one cluster of titles from the Akron Museum of Art's learn library involves: Primitive Art/Just Imagine/Picasso/Raised by means of Wolves), Sorted Books is a charming choice of visible poems jam-packed with wry wit and bookish smarts.
