In Solvent Form: Art and Destruction, Jared Pappas-Kelley explores the complex relationship between art and destruction, arguing that destruction is an impulse within the interior form of the art object. Drawing on an array of theoretical interventions, examples and anecdotes, this ambitious book would benefit from expanding beyond existing arguments in the literature on art destruction, yet it remains a timely, relevant and thought-provoking read, writes Haythem Guesmi.
