Description

Nina Hoechtl’s artist book investigates the unstable nature of human identity. The uncovered, glue-bound section of pages numbered 309 to 422 appear to be excised from a complete, bound novel. The text begins in mid-stream, with the description of a person struggling with the challenge posed by an outfit suited for a traditionally feminine girl. The conflicting needs, wants, and desires for individuality and cultural appeasement all play for dominance as the protagonist tells and re-tells the story with subtle changes throughout. Structural poetics of form and content have been perfectly matched.
