Haris Epaminonda – Chapters I-XXX

Chapters I-XXX is a book published in conjunction with the exhibitions of the artist Haris Epaminonda (Chapter IV at Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice & Vol. XIV at Galleria Massimo Minini, Brescia).

In tracing some of the notions and narratives embedded in Chapters, a 16 mm film shot in Cyprus in 2012, the idea of making a book came about as an exercise, or rather an experiment, to deconstruct the film into some of its subject matters. Embarking on a new set of associations between image and subject, source and information, meaning and abstraction, this book is both a document and a memory map, tracing the beginnings of a thought, a time, an image, a place.

The book aims at being a sort of encyclopedia, regardless of the impossibility of such a task. The reference material of the artist’s latest film Chapters is collected in these 30 posters. Printed in two copies each, they constitute a limited run edition of 60 signed posters.
