Shannon Ebner: Auto Body Collision

Published by Carnegie Museum of Art
Text by Alex Klein, Tina Kukielski, Mark Owens.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Shannon Ebner: Auto Body Collision</i>.Using photography as a language, Shannon Ebner (born 1971) examines the signs, symbols, letters, words and graphical icons we encounter in the world. Auto Body Collision documents Ebner's most recent ongoing project, a multipart series of photographs that began on a trip to Italy in 2014. Ebner has been collecting language taken from signs, seeking out repetitions of terms such as "Auto Body Collision" and "Automotive." In dissecting found language and coupling it with her own, Ebner establishes connections between the terms "auto," "body," "motive" and "collision." The themes of Ebner's new work include the circulatory and the network, performance and its relationship to the body, and collision, in terms both literal and conceptual.
Auto Body Collision, designed in collaboration with the artist, includes more than 150 never-before-published photographs, as well as essays by Alex Klein, Tina Kukielski and Mark Owens.

Shannon Ebner: Auto Body Collision

Shannon Ebner: Auto Body CollisionIn Shannon Ebner's newest artist's book, releasing this week from the Carnegie Museum of Art, essayist Alex Klein writes, "Since 2007 Ebner has embarked on a series of publications of her photographic letterforms as images, poems, grids, landscapes and test patterns. Spread across time and different in format, these books may be read together or as individual 'stanzas' extracted from a larger body of text. Yet because of the extended periods of time between production, publication and distribution, they also sit outside of a linear experience of the written word. Rather than provide a continuous experience of reading, they are instead traversed by a sense of delay and feedback. In this, her latest book, Auto Body Collision, words move rhythmically across the page and then suddenly accelerate to an up-and-down motion until a reader is thrust into the abstracted forms of Ebner's visual lexicon. On the page, the camera collides with the matter of the world, but it also reorients the way we read it. In Ebner's photographs and sculptures, 'signs' inevitably play with and loop back to the role of signification, but they also disrupt it, simultaneously giving us direction… and in an absurd gesture, pointing us nowhere in particular." continue to blog
