ANTI-MONUMENTS
De\tour\1\2\3\
Is a large photo installation from hundreds of 6x7 negatives, taken while re-staging the paths designated by King Louis XIV as his official diplomatic garden tours, called 'the manner for viewing the gardens of Versailles.'

"I've been performing photography while re-staging these walks, which I call de\tours, through these gardens since January 2000, when I read that a huge storm had destroyed a large portion of the gardens. Initially on site, I was looking for the famed Labyrinth of Versailles, only to find that it had already been destroyed by Louis XVI to create a Queens Garden, in the style of a new 'naturalism' for Marie Antoinette (think Capability Brown versus earlier landscape architect Le Nôtre). I had read of this labyrinth and seen prints depicting it. The misunderstanding that it still existed became a lynch-pin to my decade + work at Versailles, and questions which address documents as recordings, as evidence, and our approach to documentary materials and practices; trace, entropy, and remains. I was fascinated with how nature had been an image before it had become plants, trees, and so forth, in the gardens and grounds." —from Daly's letters
