Simone Forti, Los Angeles, 2017.
Soft cover, perfect bound, 64 pp., color illustrations, 6.5 × 9 inches
Edition of 500
Simone Forti is a dancer, artist and writer based in Los Angeles. The images in "On An Iron Post" are from Simone's solo show of the same name, which took place at The Box LA in the Fall of 2015. The pages accumulate like a day of experiences with different energies: abrasive, lyrical, pedestrian, adding up to something complex but without closing in on any particular meaning. There are images of the video 'Flag in the Water,' a sculpture built out of steel originally sketched in a notebook way back in 1961, and even a small painting of a sink.
