Dana Darvish - Study for Woman
Since 2014, Dana Darvish has created montage works compiled into a series titled “The Destruction of All Art”. She cut out canonical images from the history of photography and art history, then mixed and grafted them onto images from a variety of content domains, retaining the title of one of the appropriated artworks and, on occasion, including the caption of the original from which the image was taken. The titles captured in the montages are subverted to the point of actual destruction of the art and a negation of the meanings instilled by their original creators. The works from this series are juxtaposed in this book with photographs and other collages by Darvish.
