Parallel Encyclopedia #2
by Batia Suter


Second volume of the “Parallel Encyclopedia”.

Batia Suter’s work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. This volume follows on from the first ‘Parallel Encyclopedia’, published in 2007. Underlying themes of Suter’s practice are the “iconification” and “immunogenicity” of old images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values. “In my work, I collect groups of images based on various themes and characteristics, and I investigate how they can manipulate each other, depending on where and how they are placed. In the process of making this book, narrative lines unfolded before my eyes as I shifted images around.”

Parallel Encyclopedia
by Batia Suter

The result of a long term investigation, this voluminous encyclopaedia contains solely images collected from other books, and reads as an exhilarating and extremely rich filmic sequence. Artist Batia Suter’s interest lies not only in the iconographic value of images and the way that the human brain processes visual information, but also the causes by which images become charged with associative values.

This first volume of the Parallel Encyclopedia is long out-of-print. The second Parallel Encyclopedia was published in 2016, also by Roma Publications in Amsterdam.
