Publisher's Description

T. R. Ericsson's self-published artist's book is a clever take on Marcel Duchamp's enigmatic last work Étant Donnés, in which viewers could look through a peep hole at a diorama of a nude woman lying spread-legged in a grassy area. This second edition of Ericsson's Etant Donnes forms a cinematic tableau consisting of over 400 full-bleed black and white photographs that depict the collapsed nude body of an unidentified woman in a densely-wooded landscape. Like Duchamp's piece, Ericsson's book presents a scenario that invites voyeurism but denies any easy answers to the myriad of questions and issues it raises.
