Publisher's Description

The photographer’s art of arrangement: a book of constructed pages from the author of My Birth

This book of multivalent narratives began with a simple premise: the collection of sheets of paper—ripped from books—featuring multiple photographs and inlaid narratives. Across a decade of working on other projects involving pulling images apart from one another, excising them from the page and recontextualizing them as new sets, American artist Carmen Winant diligently collected disparate sheets, skimming them off the top of her other ongoing collections. The book that has resulted from that work is wide-ranging in terms of subject—with sheets depicting rabbinical study, dog training, surgical birth, methods of tantric sex, patterns of the sunset—yet specific in approach and application. Her constructed pages trouble how the idea of “theme” operates as the engine of a book, instead taking the act of arranging, both in discrete pages and as a whole, as its own meaningful subject. Arrangements, a book without explanatory text, might be understood as offering design solutions, proposing strategies of recycling and recovery, and demonstrating modes of sociality through systems of photographic organization.
