Produced on the occasion of the exhibition; Pati Hill: Photocopier, A Survey of Prints and Books (1974-83), November 4, 2017 – March 4, 2018

This publication considers the first phase of the cross-disciplinary art of Pati Hill (1921-2014). Although her exploration of the copier, which she called “a found instrument—a saxophone without directions,” did not begin until the early 1970s, Hill is regarded as a pioneer due to her singular approach and commitment to the medium.

Employing the copier to record items as common as a gum wrapper or as unexpected as a dead swan, she also applied the process to transform appropriated photographs for her experiments with narrative. This catalogue features twelve different projects, including Hill’s attempt to photocopy the palace and grounds of Versailles.
