JO ANN CALLIS: OTHER ROOMS. Ed. by Amelia Lang. Aperture Foundation, Inc., New York, 2014. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 88 pp. with 40 ills. (29 col.). 29 x 22 cm. LC 2013-956761 ISBN 9781597112758 In English.
Publisher's description: Jo Ann Callis: Other Rooms, the first publication to comprehensively feature Jo Ann Callis' mid-1970s investigation of the nude body and sexuality, is a revelation; the work is provocative, seductive and remarkably fresh. The artist's playful, evocative use of constrictions and overlays on the human form, including twine, belts, tape and other everyday materials, are both humorous and fraught, offering an intensely personal assessment of the variable meanings of pleasure and the female nude as a staple of fine art photography. Callis has been an active artist since the 1960s, working in painting, sculpture and photography, among other media, and is known for capturing complex and often opposing emotions in a single piece. Jo Ann Callis: Other Rooms is an exquisitely produced artist's book containing Callis' photographs of the human form from her 1976-77 provisionally titled series Early Color, as well as a selection of black-and-white photographs from the same period.
