Parallel Encyclopedia 1 by Batia Suter
Publisher: Roma Publications
Batia Suter’s work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. ‘Parallel Encyclopedia’ contains a precise composition of images from other books. Underlying themes of the Amsterdam-based, Swiss artist’s practice are the “iconification” and “immunogenicity” of old images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values. This is a reprint of Suter’s voluminous book, originally published in 2007.
