Anti-monuments

Ann Burke Daly

    The Anti-Monuments (a series of notational photographs taken in the gardens of Versailles) are part of a broader inquiry concerning the psychological and social space of the garden and landscape architecture, emphasizing disorientation, anxiety, entropy, and disarray within a theater of (failed and continuously shifting) order and display.

Ann Burke Daly is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. A portion of the project appearing in this issue was published in February in Jochen Gerz’s online Anthology-of-Art, recently on view at the Pompidou and forthcoming in book form.
