Spanning several generations, from Dada to the present, "Blind Cut "explores notions surrounding the themes of fiction and deception. Questions regarding identity, authorship, originality and reality are posed in a range of methodologies, including depictions of fictional places, imagined personas, inaccurate histories and invented language. This book documents Marlborough Chelsea's 2012 exhibition of the same name and expands upon its core themes with ancillary texts and ephemera, including interviews and other written works by Alex Waterman, J.G. Ballard, Richard Prince, James Frey, Pierre Huyge and Philippe Parreno, The John Fare Estate, The Anabel Vale Archive, J.T. LeRoy / Laura Albert, Kurt Schwitters, Francois Aubart, Raimundas Malasauskas, and Mark Flood. Also featured are works by over 50 artists, including Marcel Broodthaers, Guy de Cointet, Anne Collier, Der Dada, Ryan Gander, Mario Garcia Torres, George Grosz, Lothar Hempel, Elmyr de Hory, Asger Jorn, Mike Kelley, Robert Lazzarini, Adam McEwen, Francis Picabia, Eileen Quinlan, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Superstudio and Jeffrey Vallance.
