Here’s some info about Paperwork, and the Will of Capital:
In her new work Taryn Simon once again demonstrates the fascinating process of deconstructionism. Paperwork, and the Will of Capital investigates the significance of individually composed flower arrangements that ornament negotiating tables when diplomatic agreements are formally concluded. In meticulous, delicate work, Simon uses this apparently trivial kind of decoration to reflect upon the still life genre: she sheds light upon the magnitude of international trade in plants, as well as current geopolitics, in order to question ways of staging political power.
“These flowers sat between powerful men as they signed agreements designed to influence the fate of the world.” – Taryn Simon
Not the lucky winner of the giveaway? You can still buy your copy of Paperwork, and the Will of Capital from Hatje Cantz.
