—01. A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters.
Mono.Kultur magazine have just released their latest Mono.Editionen to coincide with Taryn Simon's new showing of her A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters series. Taking the opportunity to rerelease their best selling issue, which contained the original series by Simon, the new edition comes packaged in a glassine envelope and contains not only the magazine reprint, but also and interview addendum and ten plates from the series, printed as a set of separate cards. The series itself was shot over the course of four years in Brazil, Bosnia, Uday and India, and is described by the artist herself as "the external forces of territory, power, circumstance or religion and how they collide with the internal forces of psychological and physical inheritance."
