Described as "An archipelagic journal published at irregular intervals", with essays by Rodney Graham, William Gibson, Robert Linsley, and Shep Steiner, this catalogue was produced in conjunction with the Summer 1997 Venice Biennale. The essays centre around Rodney Graham's film installation Vexation Island, that is, in the artist's words, "a costume picture, that is to say a travesty" where the sole isolated character is seen stranded on an island. Texts in English, French, and Italian. Designed by Leopold en Zonen and Rodney Graham.
