I’m really glad that Performance Mix #34: Remotely Yours turned out to be so productive for me. I was able to wrap my head around the ideas that were all circling in my head.
A 101 limited edition, handmade book Removed Exposure was published in 2005 and distributed by Printed Matter. Six black and white photographs are cut down the middle and bound at either end, allowing for strange pairings between the halves of the noir-ish cropped portraits. A tiny manila envelope rests in a felt compartment in the back of the book and holds textual clues to the identity of the woman obliquely pictured in the previous pages. The book is based on a performance of the same name by Karen Bernard and was produced in collaboration with Gray Fraser and Alexandra Wixon. Photography is by Newfoundland photographer Sheilagh O’Leary.
