Product Description

Love Your Parasites is a picture book that recognizes the “co-suffering parasite” through the lens of the motif in different art practices. Motif is taken to be a charged shape that communicates a desire. A form that is clung to, repeated and ascribed significance, that sticks around for a long period of time: scab, bruise, receptor. In this case contamination is renewal, a recurrence without security. Circulation is an intoxicated survival. The motif feels like something you cannot get rid of; yet at the same time it can be printed and distributed just like that. If you distribute something it has to take on the role of commodity at some point. This book is now released, starts sweating and moves uneasily in the world. Essentially printing these images becomes a reflection on the uneven currency of book publishing and distribution.
