BORIS MIKHAILOV

50 EUR

I Am Not I brings together 33 tritone images from Boris Mikhailov's iconic series of self portraits that were made as the Soviet Union crumbled. Includes a text by Senior Tate Curator of Photography, Simon Baker.


"In describing the genesis of I Am Not I in the political context of the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet state, Mikhailov has suggested that he was performing a kind of anti-heroic riposte to the muscular confidence of Soviet-era monumental iconography.

I Am Not I, a thoroughly unacceptable series of propositions on masculinity, libido and the egoideal, is not only an artist’s performance for the camera, but a deliberately self-cancelling account of the impossible contradictions of authorship and identity."

ABOUT

Publisher specialising in limited edition Photo and Art Books.

We view the book as the final step in an artists process, and encourage the artist to engage in the conception, design and feel of the book.

Having worked on the book closely with the artist we feel it is only right we also keep a close relationship with bookshops.

Occasionally our books can be bought with special editions.
