Summary
2A fine artist book in a limited edition of 12, consisting of 9 etchings and 12 poetic texts exploring the textures of contemporary narcissism, with particular focus on how recent technological forms inherit a classical and mythological lineage. Through the acerbic intricacy of Jiri Tibor Novak{u2019}s masterful etchings, and the lyrical ironies of award winning Australian writer Gregory Day, {u2018}A Smile at Arm{u2019}s Length{u2019} surveys the continuities and disjunctures between the Narcissus figure of classical mythology, the blown-hand stencils of Aboriginal Australia, and the follies and pleasures of 21st century digital obsessions with the self-reflected image.3{u2014}Publisher{u2019}s flyer
