lapses in Thinking By the person i Am presents documentation and texts from Josephine Pryde’s exhibition at CCA Wattis Institute and ICA Philadelphia. In this body of work, Pryde combines a series of color photographs of hands touching objects with a scale-model freight train and track, replete with miniaturized graffiti, that took visitors in a short ride through the exhibition. Through photography and sculpture, Pryde pays close attention to the nature of image making and the conditions display, subtly reworking codes and conventions to alter our cultural perception and understanding of each. In this book, “The Individual,” an essay by Pryde originally published in the journal Texte zur Kunst, is followed by an essay from CCA Wattis exhibition curator Jamie Stevens and a conversation between Pryde and ICA curator Anthony Elms.

This publication accompanies the exhibition Josephine Pryde: lapses in Thinking By the person i Am, which was on view at the Wattis from May 5 through August 1, 2015, and traveled to the Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia.
