Moveable Wounds

Janice Gurney
Art Metropole
Artists' Books
20.5 × 20.5 cm

Gurney’s book is a compilation of World War 1 documentary photographs juxtaposed with reproduced pages from her grandfather’s journal, who was a soldier at the time. The photographs of gruesome battle have been amended by the artist to reveal their structural composition. In addition, the bandages of the victims have been repaired with the use of silkscreen overlays.
