This book is an unconventional autobiography. It retraces one year in the life of Rob Pruitt through the quotidian objects that the artist once loved, consumed, then felt he didn’t need anymore. An extension of the real-world flea markets, that he has been organizing since the early 1990’s, this particular collection of belongings sold on eBay from September 23 2013- September 23 2014 unearths precious fragments of Pruitt’s life while revealing his most material desires.

Clearly indebted to Andy Warhol’s ironic identity play in his photobooth self portraits, these photographs were shot for the series The Exquisite Self Portraits, 2010, in which Rob Pruitt collaged onto large canvases three or four horizontal bands featuring photo fragments of his head and chest.

This publication is the fifth in a series of artist books dedicated to b/w portraits.
