AIPAD 2018 – John Divola, presented by MACK


Sooanne Berner, MACK, London: Many of us are familiar with John Divola’s series Vandalism, made in the 70s when the West Coast master was fresh out of college, but until now there has never been a book dedicated solely to this body of work. We collaborated with Divola, sifting through his archives to build this hardback book, which brings together his photographs of dilapidated homes in Los Angeles – interiors that he spray painted with shamanistic shapes, and walls that he may or may not have hacked into to create stunning, embellished scenes of wreckage. At the time, he was experimenting with what would become a career-long investigation into transgressing photographic boundaries: mixing documentary photography with formal, aesthetic interventions. We can’t wait to launch this book at AIPAD.
