Published in conjunction with 1:1, this catalog features drawings, photographs, and scholarly essays on the exhibition, as well as a transcribed interview with archaeologist Ulrich Simon. Sketches outline how Mallozzi meticulously shaped the works in his show within the space of the gallery, taking in considerations of space, structure, and sound for the exhibition. Among these full-color reproductions, we recall a line from Joseph Clayton Mills, a featured essayist in this book: “A fissure opens between original and copy, past and present, figure and ground, and we can no longer say with much certainty which is which.”
