138pp., 4to., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Berlin, 2011. R440
A monograph of Abrie Fourie’s work which includes photographs taken on four continents. It "can be seen as a catalogue of memories, as an ongoing archive. He explores the familiar and intimate zones of home with the same interest and curiosity as he does the unknown. He states that this approach is 'not so much defining a place, as circling the relationship between spaces, sign and self; it hints at that silent tension between absence and presence, abstraction and reality'” Storm Janse van Rensburg

Includes "The Cold Storage Club: notes on not writing" from "The Loss Library and Other Unfinished Stories" by Ivan Vladislaviƈ.

Abrie Fourie was born in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1969, and lives and works in Berlin. Germany. He was the recipient of the Spier Contemporary Art Award 2007.
