ARTIST'S BOOKS

Drafts: Letters Unsent

Vol. XVII, Roman Nvmerals Books
by Ann Burke Daly

In a blurring of the genres of memoir and fiction, Ann Burke Daly's Drafts: Letters Unsent, is a meditation on the narrator’s detective work, through unsent letters, which struggle with the aftermath of 20th Century wars, for her family and regarding their roles. Radical doubt regarding documents, particularly photographs, and the active dynamic of interpretation, underscores the role of desire and psychological projection through this forensic search from snippets of narrative, papers, photographs, language, stories. Published by Roman Nvmerals of Brooklyn, New York.

Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, Thomas Watson Library Collection | 2021 — Daly's artist book "Drafts: Letters Unsent" is held in the collection.

Box of Fiction

Vol. LVII, Roman Nvmerals Books
by Ann Burke Daly

Daly’s Box of Fiction, is a photographic essay on the uncanny afterlife of objects, photographs, narratives, and biographies inherited through material and verbal fragments, and of the act of documenting—as in a crime scene— the contents of a cardboard box discovered a decade after the death of the artist’s mother. For Daly, the work of interpretation does not rest, rather it remains agitated within a palimpsest of silencing surrounding catastrophic family events. Published by Roman Nvmerals of Brooklyn, New York.

Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, Thomas Watson Library Collection | 2021 — Daly's artist book "Box of Fiction," is held in the collection.
