Thomas Cap de Ville
Cap de Ville was a child of the nineties and noughties. The extracts from the works contained in this volume are a personal testament to this time, to his time. He refers to these book-objects as 'psychophores': they contain hair, theeth and bodily fluids, alongside collected objects, talismans, detritus, and personal photographs, all conserved in transparent adhesive tape. His archive covers the years from 1996-2019 (the year the book-objects were assembled) without clear indicators of time passing or time stamps. It remains defiantly out of time.
