About the Book
Dark Matter is a dialogue of images between Mishka Henner, Jean Keller, Jonathan Lewis and Andreas Schmidt. Produced over a period of three weeks between late August and early September 2011, the artists took turns to send each other single photographs by email, each one a response to the previous image, creating a continuous and meandering photographic exchange.
In searching the vast universe of images at their disposal, the artists’ responses present literal, metaphorical and surreal interpretations that form a one-off visual vocabulary shrouded in mystery, surprise, and danger.
Dark Matter is a collaborative project by Mishka Henner, Jean Keller, Jonathan Lewis
and Andreas Schmidt, members of ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative.
The book was published on the occasion of the Dark Matter exhibition at The Mews Project Space in London, September 2011.
