Tacita Dean. FLOH [signed]

The photographs in Floh were discovered by Tacita Dean in flea markets across Europe and America. These portraits, holiday snapshots, documents of banal occurrences or spectacular views have all been retrieved and given a new existence. They retain the anonymity of the flea market, but are here salvaged as art. Flo comes beautifully printed in a linen cover, with a slipcase, and each copy of the book is signed and numbered by the artist. Dean eventually stopped attending flea markets for fear of finding an image that “should have been in the book,” but then decided that there could never be a final version to this collection.
