Abstract
For her photograph "Strewn" Clay reuses a book, namely Michael Turner's "The Pornographer's Poem", which she previously soaked in water and destroyed as part of her series “Each Wild Idea.” Also echoed is the performance in Loci when books by prominent women authors are soaked in milk. Here the book has been salvaged, dried and resituated in a placid and unemotional living room. This cryptic scenario makes us wonder whether Turner’s book is in or out of context.
