About This Item

Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press & JGS, 2005. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Thin square quarto [24 cm] Beige silk cloth over boards with an illustrated paper label mounted to the front board. The boards are just a trifle soiled, and the artist's name on the backstrip is rubbed. May require extra postage due to size. One in a first edition of 500 copies.

"This stark itinerary of images by Francesca Danieli represents an impassioned defense of the subject and its objects. It defies the reductive bifurcation of the signifier and the cipher by integrating their painful implications. Exhibited like a strange catalogue of antique oddities, elegantly banal furnishings emerge with their undeniable role as mute witness, material receptacle, or perverse reflection. Peeling away their skins, we find the viral histories that lie dormant in their fabrics, the spectral and diseased memories in their mirrors, the contagious patina of their surfaces. These images contain the most dire imaginings, they show us the residual and the inescapable, a revenge of the 'memento mori,' an unremittimg reminder that the objects that envelop us are themselves ciphers of decay and mortality." - Timothy Druckrey.
