Marisa J Futernick @ Arnolfini, Bristol
18 October 2016 - 13 November 2016
A Reading Room display of a new artist’s bookwork based on a 10,000 mile road trip and the history of the US Presidency. In 2014, Marisa J. Futernick drove across America, visiting all thirteen of the nation’s Presidential libraries along the way. 13 Presidents is the result: an artist’s book that combines photographs from the journey with a suite of short stories. Mixing fact and fiction, each President from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush is a protagonist in this collection of unexpected portraits. To coincide with this year’s Presidential election and with the publication of 13 Presidents, a selection of photographs from the project is presented in the Reading room. Shot on analogue film, the photographs depict the everyday details of the towns that these men are from, including the homes where they were born, and their final resting places.
