THE VILLAGE: SMALL ENCAMPMENTS
By Stephanie Syjuco
2009

full color, paperback, 92 pages
US $29.95

Expanding on an earlier photographic series, this book documents an installation that intersects two seemingly disparate narratives: a documentary portrait of my domestic space with a completely constructed and fantasized “homeland.” Culled from tourist photos of the Philippines downloaded from the internet, the small cut-out dioramas form little embedded colony encampments and outposts within an apartment environs.

Full-color folio spanning ten years of the artist’s works, including installation, sculpture, drawings, photography, and other media. From the introduction: “Using mostly cheap materials like foamboard, contact paper, tape, scrap wood, and laserjet prints—-I have made images and objects that reference architectural or scientific diagrams, electronic equipment, cityscapes, mass-produced goods, and contemporary artworks. What interests me are the mis-translations or mis-appropriations (be they purposeful or accidental) that happen when an image or concept is remade and shifted away from their correct territories, and especially when traveling from the “top” (i.e. the global) on “downwards” (localized communities)…”
