Publisher's description: How many buildings around the world have such distinctive designs that simply their outline, and nothing else, is enough to identify them? In There But Not, artist Jose Davila has physically cut out, from photographs, over 100 of the world's most famous and beloved buildings and structures. Following in the footsteps of his appropriationist forbears from the 1970s and 80s such as renowned artists Sherrie Levine and Richard Prince, and staking a claim for the hand-produced in today's digital world, Davila takes prosaic architecture so well-known it's largely taken for granted, and reformats it with a renewed appreciation occurring as a result... Featuring ancient marvels and contemporary gems, the conspicuously absent work of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Zaha Hadid, Frank Lloyd Wright, Santiago Calatrava, Anish Kapoor, and many more provides for a delightfully unique trip around the world for architecture and design lovers.
