What has two heads, four eyes, six legs and a tail?
It is white but one cannot see it.
This book of photographs is the
long-awaited sequel to A NOT B(2010).
Again, quotidian items are staged and
captured through the unblinking eye of the camera. Yet the images are no longer
set in the innocent atmosphere of the
preschool years, when the world is read
through analogies, but catapulted into
a darker space of representation at the
cusp of adolescence, against the backdrop
of a hyper-commercialized world.
The compositions seduce the viewer
into a distinctive play with logic,
language and meaning. Like protean
characters in a play, objects trans-
form from their humble selves into
abstract shapes discharged of meaning
or, alternately, star as products with
ascribed values, advertisements for
themselves charged with desire or
bad omens of an ominous future.
