AWARDED THE PERIMETER SMALL BOOK PRIZE / by Izabela Pluta

Perimeter has announces Izabela Pluta as the winner of the 2019 Perimeter Small Book Prize. 

Figures of Slippage and Oscillation was selected from a shortlist of 10 proposals narrowed down from more than 100 entries from across Australia and New Zealand.

”The judging panel – which included Perimeter’s Justine Ellis, Dan Rule, Emma Phillips, Felix Wilson and Nadiah Abdulrahim – was particularly impressed by the richness, completeness and allegorical potential of Pluta’s project, which draws upon a series of meticulous contact prints or “paper negatives” made by exposing the pages of three long-out-of-date atlases. Fastidious in its detail, but loosened from its original source, the resulting series works to collapse and blend landmasses, territories and power structures, critically and creatively challenging our notions of place.” - Read more …

Perimeter will publish the winning entry by late 2019.
