Synopsis: Silver letterpressed text written by Sarah Blake tells the story of fourteen runaways girls plucked from their original contexts in the history of art and advertising and presented here, scrapbook style, altered but not undone by the interventions of Robin Kahn. (Printed Matter) "Inspired by a 1917 police notice of two teenage girls who had run away from their homes, the artist and poet imagine below the surface of the words: Runaway Girls. Resembling an old fashioned scrapbook, their collaboration attempts to run with the girls Rather than pin them to a certain narrative of why and when. The text and images deliberately echo the haunting unknowability of the girls and their desires."-press release.
