Lara Favaretto – Momentary Monument
Published by Archive Books, 2010
I got this book this past weekend at the Motto Brooklyn pop-up store (open through Tuesday). I wasn’t familiar with this artist or the work at all, but I kept flipping through the book and wanting to read as much as I could. The book is broken into three sections; a prologue, 8 chapters on 20 different people who disappeared, and an epilogue. The prologue is about how a swamp is created and the epilogue describes how landscapes appear differently surrounding and after experiencing a swamp. This book is the follow-up to Favaretto’s installation at the 53rd Venice Biennale.
