Editorial Efímera: catálogo razonado
by Artist book
Editorial Efímera (Ephemeral Publishing House) begins with the encounter of Naranja Publicaciones with an archive of 193 slides in a trash can in Santiago, on June 6th, 2018. Editorial Efímera is in charge of performing 193 publishing actions, one for each image, to forge the dissolution rite of each one of the components of this archive. Completion will determine the end of the publishing house itself.
The 193 images contained in the photographic archive which gave birth to Editorial Efímera are collected in this artist’s book –with one detail: none of the images can be really seen, but only the slide’s contour and the inscription where the photograph was taken.
This print run is composed of 10 handbound units, with 193 pages printed in acetate sheets.
