The Disappeared - 2nd ed. (*signed*)

N/A - AV0058

New product

The Disappeared is a book about the blurring and dissolution of identity, both in the larger body of a population, and in the oblivion of time passing... But these vanishing images also reassemble into a collective memory, by leaving an unclear and diffuse mark in people's minds, and becoming an almost real representation of the pain and the suffering experienced by each of these persons, and by the society as a whole, in an era of the Argentinian history overwhelmed by the stony silence imposed by the junta on the population, and remembered mostly through the crual feelings of absence and miss.

A really beautiful book on Japanese paper (except for the central pages), hand-made by Verónica Fieiras and Ilkin Huseynov for their new publishing house "RIOT Books".

Presentation of the second edition by the artist:

"Focusing on the main concept of the book - blurring and dissolution of identity- I decided to make the whole book disappear.
With the use of chemicals, the original images were transferred into a new paper, vanishing their original form and suggesting only their traces.
This new dissolved images were photographed and used to recreate a new book, with the exact same sequence of the first edition.
" -- Verónica Fieiras
