HEDI EL KHOLTI’S COLLAGES

A selection of over sixty collage works by Hedi El KholtiSemiotext(e) and Animal Shelter co-editor and designer—are collected in A PLACE IN THE SUN, a Hesse Press publication.

“My collages always start with a vague notion, or a sentence, or they’re meant to be a visual portrait with vague associations of someone who’s close to me and their infinite numbers of mirrors in pop culture. As if, like me, they’re all comprised of the sum of their influences, whether they know it or not.” — Hedi El Kholti, “Pop Culture (Heroes and Villians),” PARIS LA 5 (Winter 2010/2011)

HEDI EL KHOLTI—A PLACE IN THE SUN (Los Angeles: Hesse Press, 2017).
