The Problem of Reading

Thursday, January 11
Moyra Davey's "The Problem of Reading"

The first day of My place... brought a selection from Moyra Davey's series of photographs of her own book collection, which visitors to TART viewed just as Moyra sent them to Anne, each loose in a little portfolio. Below is Moyra's statement:

"The Untitled series appears in the book The Problem of Reading, and all the photos are related in some way to that theme. Some document the transformation and ultimate dismantling of a corner bookshelf over a period of 5 years, others show close-ups of the books with accumulations of dust and small household objects. Book stacks constitute a kind of collection, and the dust, the longer it piles up, becomes a collection as well. The image of burying books with dust describes the relationship of time to our collections, where the object, a contained knowledge, gives way to the sediment of time, until time is the thing collected."

Among the visitors on day 1 of the project was SF artist and writer Jordan Essoe, who wrote the following in reaction to Moyra's work:

"Moyra's unframed handful of photographed bookcases and busy shelves escort you through a nonhierarchical circulation of personal property, and aptly summarize the expectation of what any participant in chit-chat brings to the table: a discharge of symbolic information. Whether randomly assimilated or intentionally harnessed, any assemblage of collected valuables is strangely dehumanizing and of questionable biographical value. On the other hand, as with the mental records of conversation, it inevitably invites attention, curiosity and conclusions: a sundry of detritus, deliberately set in upright rows, but scattered. A well prescribed catalyst and touchstone for 'My place Between 12 and 2' on its inaugural day."

Jordan looks through the collection with Jessica Silverman and Jessica Brier in the background, enjoying tea and conversation.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
