Pharmakon library first folio 2008

Pharmakon Library is an ongoing series of graphic folios created and curated by Jessica Silverman with Christina McPhee. The folios comprise a series of open works by artists who address, through image and/or text, the principle of critical reversability, or proximity of poison and cure. "Pharmakon" in Greek may mean antidote, recipe, poison, drug, spell, remedy, drug, talisman, gift and paint.

Each folio consists of pigment jet archival prints by three artists. Each folio is produced as an edition of three. The scale of each folio images is 13 x 19 inches each (Super B). Print stock is Epson exhibition photographic paper and Niyodo washi; and printed with K13 Ultrachrome Epson pigment inks.

The project preview occurred at the New York Art Book Fair October 23-26, 2008, with the release of the initial folios in limited edition. The project is curated and produced in association with Silverman Gallery, San Francisco.
