Evident in Advance
When post-conceptual photographer Denés Farkas was chosen to represent Estonia at the 55th Venice Biennale 2013, it put the Tallinn based artist on the world map for the first time. This volume catalogs Farka’s project for the Estonian Pavilion, both an exhibition and a piece of spatial, rhythmic writing. It was a physical manifestation of the book— this book—yet to come. A quintet of interiors created the poetic fragments of a quasi-domestic setting: a library, a garden, an absent cinema, an obsession chamber. There, the plot awaits its author, the rooms their inhabitants. We are at the core of Farkas’s delirious “meaningful meaninglessness.” Essays from Daniele Monticelli, Adriana Cavarero, Maurice Blanchot, Martin Prinzhorn, Bruce Duffy and Markus Miessen.
