I Am Not I by Boris Mikhailov

Published by Morel Books, 2016

Hardcover, 64pg. B&W

9.5" x 13"

Edition of 500

"In describing the genesis of I Am Not I in the political context of the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet state, Mikhailov has suggested that he was performing a kind of anti-heroic riposte to the muscular confidence of Soviet-era monumental iconography.

I Am Not I, a thoroughly unacceptable series of propositions on masculinity, libido and the egoideal, is not only an artist’s performance for the camera, but a deliberately self-cancelling account of the impossible contradictions of authorship and identity." - Extract from text by Simon Baker
