Haris Epaminonda-Chapters I-XXX

39 EUR
From the publisher:

"Artist's book: a deconstruction of a 16 mm film shot by Haris Epaminonda in Cyprus, embarking on a new set of associations between image and subject, source and information, meaning and abstraction.
Chapters focuses primarily on the artist's most elaborate film project to date, filmed in various locations in Cyprus and presented in four venues: Kunsthaus Z├╝rich, Modern Art Oxford, Point Centre for Contemporary Art, Nicosia (2013), Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice (2014). In the film, she questions the nature of classical film-making. Rather than following a linear, predefined narrative structure, the project unfolded over the months at the various venues in which the exhibition has been shown.
The book aims to be something like an encyclopedia, being conscious of the impossibility of such a task at the same time. It includes all the material that Epaminonda had used for the film, examining cultural rituals, their presentation, preservation and representation. Objects, costumes, animals, actors and also reference material that was important for the artist (from Fra Angelico to Parajanov, Dante to Pasolini, maps and more) are here collected in 26 posters."
