Designed by Paris-based Clément Wibaut, Benny Nemer: I Don’t Know Where Paradise Is expands upon Nemer’s 2020 CUAG exhibition and eponymous audio work distilled from his research in the libraries of elder gay scholars in Amsterdam, London, Montreal, Paris and Vienna.

This beautiful and intimate book features lush photographs of the thirteen pairings of exquisite floral arrangements created with members of Ottawa’s queer community in response to chapters of the audio work for the exhibition, and essays by five writers that astutely situate Nemer’s work in broader, overlapping contexts.
