The eighth title in Decathlon’s ongoing exploration of the weird and wonderful comes courtesy of Melbourne-based artist Misha Hollenbach. No stranger to the form, Hollenbach co-runs P.A.M. Books and is part of multimedia collective The Changes. The Silver Lining is primarily a collection of collages, cut-ups from a variety contemporary detritus reconfigured as a delirious, erotically-charged bad trip. The best images here
could also function as sketches for sculptural assemblages. It comes with a double-sided color poster on newsprint — psilocybin not included.
