Recycle presents over fifty original collages by Amy Gall and Sarah Gerard, bookended by an in-depth interview between the two. Both published writers, Gall and Gerard have independent practices that coalesce in a dialogue addressing the natural vs. the man made, female sexuality, and spatial dysmorphia. Recycle is their first art book, published by Pacific, New York.
Amy Gall's fiction, essays and interviews have appeared in, among others Tin House, Vice, Poets & Writers, Glamour Magazine, Guernica, Brooklyn Magazine, PANK, Joyland and The Los Angeles Review of Books, and the anthology Mapping Queer Spaces. She is the recipient of a fellowship from the MacDowell Colony and earned her MFA in creative writing from The New School. She is currently working on a collection of linked essays about sex, violence, and bodily return.
Sarah Gerard is the author of the essay collection Sunshine State, a New York Times critics’ choice, the novel Binary Star, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times first fiction prize, and two chapbooks. Her short stories, essays, interviews, and criticism have appeared in The New York Times, Granta, The Baffler, Vice, BOMB Magazine, and other journals, as well as anthologies. Her paper collages have appeared in Hazlitt, BOMB Magazine, Epiphany Magazine, No Tokens Journal, and the Blue Earth Review, and have shown in Denver, Colorado, and Hudson, New York.
