Usually the semi-hard cover of this out of shape book is molested due to trying to go through the pages. Indeed, technically it is a difficult book to read; therefore it is wise to unscrew the bolts at the back of the book and start reading while carefully putting the loose pages back on the bolts.

In collection of Walker Art Center Library, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

Press release Gagosian Gallery, New York, USA:

July 27th – August 24th, 2007
Press Release: Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce “With Full Consent”, Jill Magid’s first solo exhibition in New York, on display at the fifth floor space at 980 Madison Avenue. The show features an array of works linked by the investigation of the emotional and philosophical relationship between “protective” institutions and conventions, and individual identity. A prime example is Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy, a large-scale multimedia project initiated upon the artist’s return home after living abroad for five years. When an announcement over the subway PA informed everyone that any passenger may be subject to a search “for security reasons” Magid responded by approaching a police officer and asking him to search her. He refused, but she persisted. Ultimately she infiltrated his world – to a degree – Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy: police code for “love.”
