FIGURES OF SLIPPAGE & OSCILLATION • Izabela Pluta
Perimeter Editions / 2019
Paperback / 88 pages

Sydney-based photographer and artist Izabela Plutas debut book draws on a series of darkroom contact prints that were conceived by shining light through the pages of out-of-print editions of The Readers Digest Great World Atlas. This philosophical and conceptual grappling with geography and cartography bears witness to the turbulence, mutability, and power structures that both prop up and undermine the static dogmas of the global map. The world as we know it blurs and collapses in on itself in these elusively detailed images, where flow and miasma gently erase the borders and demarcations the strategic fictions and mythologies we use to define our semantics of place.
