DENIKE, Jen. Seven Suns.
(New York): Oliver Kamm 5BE Gallery. 2006. First edition. Small 8vo. An artists’ book by Jen DeNike in collaboration with Peter Coffin, Adam Helms, Amy Smith Stewart, Justin Lowe, Anat Ebgi, Aaron Young, and Mika Rottenberg. Inspired by Ed Ruscha’s Nine Swimming Pools and A Broken Glass, Seven Suns is a meditation on vernacular, nostalgia, repetition, vacancy, and mortality. True to Ruscha’s publication, Seven Suns proposes a structural format of images and blank pages, mirroring the same number of blank pages to images, from front to back, and in reverse, prompting a formal compositional rhythm. Published in an edition of 1000 numbered copies. A fine copy in a glassine dust jacket. This copy signed by the author
