Preview of Peloponnesia: As Tortured Narrative

Selected Works from 
Shot by the Writer and 
Heated Words

Tom Benedek’s first novel, Peloponnesia, will be published in 2011. Tortured Narrative explores the raw states of a completed text, the manuscript of the novel. The photographs and sculptures in Tortured Narrative use physical drafts of the text in galleys and proofs as representations of states of composition and decomposition –the transition of imagined creation to print and paper and beyond — and as evidence for the mutability of text both literally and figuratively.  The material ferments, dissolves, reconfigures itself in both its organic, tangible form and in the writer’s mind beyond the printed page.

Exhibit on view through April 12, 2011
