by Tamy Ben-Tor and Miki Carmi
Regency Arts Press Ltd. is pleased to announce the publication of Disembodied Archetypes, a collaborative artist's book by Tamy Ben-Tor and Miki Carmi. This is the first publication in 2X, Regency Arts Press Ltd.'s new series of collaborative books by two artists.
Tamy Ben-Tor works in performance and video; Miki Carmi is a painter. As a married couple, their ideas and processes feed off each other and germinate in each other's work, through a variety of overlaps and interchanges. Disembodied Archetypes is a dissection and - being an artwork collaboratively made - recorded testimony of their separate yet often cross-pollinating artistic practices. Disembodied Archetypes consists of notes, texts, snapshots, historical evidence, translations, diagrams, Old Master paintings, family photographs, studies, and a myriad of other materials that, when strung together, reveal the symbiosis and constant reinforming that takes place between the work of these two artists.
Tamy Ben-Tor is represented in New York by Zach Feuer Gallery, Miki Carmi by Stux Gallery. Their work has been exhibited in a wide range of American and international institutions, including the Moderna Museet, Stockholm; the Mori Museum, Tokyo; the Israel Museum, Jerusalem; MoCA, Los Angeles; and PS1/MoMA and the Whitney Museum, both in New York.

We are primarily committed to fostering experimentation and innovation, and to giving artists opportunities to work outside of the concerns and constraints of the commercial art marketplace.
