This artist’s book accompanies Ari Marcopoulos’s exhibition at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen. To create the book, Marcopoulos re-photographed prints of his photographs that he had produced at home using a pigment printer. This process was in many ways a continuation of the period of pandemic isolation in which most of the images were photographed. Closely aligned with his own copious output, the selection is both haphazard and intuitive, leaving room for spontaneity and even mistakes. A portion of the book also focuses on the 2021 video installation ‘Alone Together’, featuring a saxophone performance by jazz legend Joe McPhee, which forms a central part of the exhibition.
