Shana Kaplow -- Objects Objects


“This book distills Kaplow’s thought and creative output into a single object in much the same way that Kaplow shows us seemingly mundane objects hold so much: the dreams and fears of both an individual and the larger world, arranged in complex layers that are deeply rewarding to explore.” — Eric Morris-Pusey

Object Objects, a chronicle of Shana Kaplow’s contemporary art practice, moves from intimate sketches and notes printed on translucent, vellum pages to lush documentation of the artist’s monumental ink-on-paper installations. This beautifully printed volume features images of finished work, works-in-progress, source materials, notes, and sketches, offering the sensibility of a studio visit. Designed by the award-winning graphic designer Matthew Rezac, Object Objects also includes a creative non-fiction essay by New Orleans writer, Veronica Kavass, and a conversation between Kaplow and Minneapolis artist, Sarah Petersen. The texts reveal layered aspects of Kaplow’s work, illuminating its poetic, conceptual, and biographical underpinnings while allowing the reader plenty of space to ponder the work for themselves.
