ashes and broken brickwork

Earlier I mentioned Mekhitar Garabedian's publication for KIOSK. Now, for that same exhibition another book was made by Susanne Kriemann. The book can be read as an inventory of the trajectory that the artist pursued in relation to archaeology, to the artefact and the idea of the desert as a symbol of the modern desire to create an empty slate, a tabula rasa. Material from Agatha Christie's photographic archives is related to photographs that Kriemann produced of the Syrian desert and archaeological sites in Mesopotamia. It is for sale at Roma Publications.
