Limited edition with a signed silver-gelatin print and textile pouch

Series 2: Angel

With secrets drawn from her archive, Graciela Iturbide creates a curious world in which the human subjects we encounter in her widely-known portraits are absent. In Asor, the human subject is the reader alone, dream borne, on a journey in which all places remain nameless, time cannot be ascertained, and the course is lost to the imagination. Loosely inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Iturbide constructs her intimate homage to Lewis Carroll’s classic tale without words, making use of the narrative as well as formal elements of her photographs to take her readers on a fantastic journey that can unfold only in print.

Accompanying the visual work are six electroacoustic works by composer Manuel Rocha Iturbide. Composed over a fifteen-year period from 1990 to 2005 from sources taped by Rocha Iturbide during his extensive travels, the compositions were selected by the composer in response to his mother’s photographs.

The textile pouches for the limited edition were designed by Christina Kim/dosa using remnants and off-cuts from dosa clothing lines. The reversible pouches are hand-spun, hand-woven, organic hill cotton on the outside and habutai silk on the inside. Each unique pouch was hand-embroidered in India by the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) in Ahmedabad and sewn at dosa in Los Angeles.

The limited edition consists of 5 series, each 22 copies with 3 APs.

Each includes a copy of Asor by Graciela Iturbide with a signed and numbered silver-gelatin print in a unique cotton and silk textile pouch. The silver-gelatin prints were printed by Michel Karman under the direction of Graciela Iturbide.
