Presents her recent work, A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters I–XVIII (2012)

Taryn Simon presented her recent work, A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters I–XVIII, exhibited at Museum of Modern Art, New York from May – September 2012. Produced over a four-year period during which the artist travelled around the world researching and recording bloodlines and their related stories, her collection is both cohesive and arbitrary, mapping the relationships between chance, blood and other components of fate.
