The Moth House is pleased to announce its participation in Paris Photo 2021 with MelanieRio Fluency (stand A1). We will be displaying our latest books as well as a new series of photographs by Edgar Martins, titled "Lipographs". "Lipographs" is a term coined by Martins and inspired in George’s Perec’s lipogramme. In this series Martins adopts Perec’s approach of applying a constrain to language in order to open up a dialogue about a traumatic subject, namely the death and disappearance of his good friend, Anton Hammerl, who disappeared during the Libya war in 2011.

Join us for the screening of The Life and Death of Schrödingers Cat, the film element of What Photography & Incarceration have in Common with an Empty Vase. This 20min short film deploys a succession of photographs, strongly reminiscent of scientific illustration and documentation, and that remarkable 1977 photobook by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel, Evidence, in which their appropriations use an older, outdated mode of photography to show a testing of truth and certainty in the wake of Watergate and Vietnam. All fail to illustrate and communicate and become instead science fiction, beautiful enigmas.
