The work of artist Moyra Davey (Toronto, 1958) has traditionally been related to photography, film and video. However, her book Quema los diarios (November 2020) shows how literature and writing take on a very significant role in her artistic production, increasingly close to the edition of artist's books.
The intertwining and resonances between his filmic works are manifested, on this occasion, in the form of quotations. This first edition in Spanish is based on Davey's generous reflections on the complex process of autobiographical creation. Traces and remains that define his usual photographic treatment of everyday scenes are interwoven with an endless number of fugitive moments and bibliographic sources.
Drawing on a particular attraction to the work of French playwright Jean Genet, Davey approaches scriptural memory from a variety of perspectives. This choral dialogue also includes an exchange with his childhood friend and reading companion, writer Alison Strayer, which illuminates the extensive relationship between image and language from the intimacy of shared friendship and creation.
