1 Liu, A. Andrew (Neil Denari, advisor) House Parts, or, Ruminations on Elements of the Domestic
1995 Soft Cover Fine 
Plain card covers with coil binding; no publisher information; 40 "parts" from "lawn" to "wunderkammer" to cartesian squirrel, to black box; about new but for "withdrawn" stamp (estate donation) to front endpaper; with tissue overlays and one fold-out. ; 6" x 10"; House Parts (1995) , his prizewinning SCI-Arc thesis, was what its author called a “rumination on elements of the domestic” in 40 collages, objects and accompanying narratives. The strategy here was bricolage, as elaborated by Claude Lévi-Strauss in The Savage Mind (an important source for Liu) and applied to all narratives by Jacques Derrida in Writing and Difference—a mindfully perverse, revelatory rearrangement of fragments rescued from a “heritage which is more or less coherent or ruined, ” according to Derrida. In Liu’s case, the “heritage” represented in the collection of objects and texts is that of modern dwelling, in its architectural, urban, historical and narrative dimensions. (Canadian Art)
