Erica Baum: The Naked Eye

Text by Cathleen Chaffee, Jean-Max Colard.

Erica Baum: The Naked EyeErica Baum’s (born 1961) The Naked Eye is the first exhaustive monograph on the artist’s eponymous series (2008–present). The volume features a suite of 58 color reproductions of Baum’s celebrated photographs, which capture slices of imagery and text within the pages of illustrated books. Essays by French writer Jean Max Colard and American curator Cathleen Chaffee elucidate the work, considering its context and relevance. A precise, economical storyteller, Erica Baum has become internationally known for her photographic work of the past two decades, which mines found sources of text and image, from art-historical indices and library card catalogues to esoteric illustrated parlor games. In this volume, Baum photographs old softcovers from their sides, revealing their fanned-out, aging pages as opposed to their spines. Without caption or context, the sliced and fragmented text of these pages creates a new narrative, one made abstract in Baum’s imagery.

Erica Baum: The Naked Eye

Erica Baum: The Naked Eye, untitled woman

A real artist's book is a beautiful thing. Erica Baum: The Naked Eye, launching tonight at Printed Matter, is such a book. Cathleen Chaffee writes, "Like apparitions, Baum’s vivified subjects emerge from a soup of visual cultural material, and their resistance makes them feel distinctly relevant: to the way we remember; to our changing relationship with books and technology; to our ongoing romance with fiction. But
all this, as Baum’s photographs also critically remind us, has already taken place. They oblige us to consider the precariousness of our own viewpoint—a present moment that, even now, is also retreating into the pulpy background." continue to blog
