Boris Mikhailov
Yesterday's Sandwich
HC, 24,5 x 35 cm., 55 plates in box.
Phaidon 2009 (2006)

Surely there must be something wrong with Boris Mikhailov, because he never stops surprising us. After the last small book called "Suzie" now from the early seventies these dual-imposions, single plates on cardbox, in a very nicely done box. The work, combining sexuality and politics, stretching both positions to the utmost, crashing them comes as a refreshing sidekick to Tarkovsky´s Polaroids from the same era.

"I am not trying to take pictures of sensational things, but rather of those things which are in excess." Boris Mikhailov, Saatchi Gallery -
