Search Engine Presentation

Search Engine is a series of index cards installed at the Arús Library, featuring photographs sourced from the Science & Miscellaneous section of the London Library – one of the world’s largest independent lending libraries. These images – many of which can also be found within the books of the Arús Library itself – are ordered as they were encountered, alphabetically by subject on shelves that make neighbours of Sleep and Smuggling and that bring together Pleasure, Poaching and Poisons. The result is an at times anarchic collection of images that could be seen as an archaeology of a photographic system of knowledge that we often taken for granted.

Search Engine appears in the form of a limited publication edited by Chiquita Ediciones on the occasion of Louis Porter’s residency at Chiquita Room during the month of April 2022.
