Black Square (2006-) is a ongoing project where Simon is collecting objects, documents and even individuals in an unlit black field with exactly the same dimensions as Kazimir Malevich’s suprematist work of 1915 that bears the same name.

was produced over a four-year period (2008–2011), during which Simon traveled around the world researching and recording bloodlines and their related stories. In each of the eighteen ‘chapters’ that make up the work, the external forces of territory, power, circumstance, or religion collide with the internal forces of psychological and physical inheritance. The subjects documented by Simon include feuding families in Brazil, victims of genocide in Bosnia, the body double of Saddam Hussein’s son Uday, and the living dead in India. Her collection is at once cohesive and arbitrary, mapping the relationships among chance, blood, and other components of fate.

Kennedy International Airport, New York.” From November 16 through 20, 2009, Simon “remained at JFK and continuously photographed items detained or seized from passengers and express mail entering the United States from abroad.”

The book includes 70 colour plates as well as a foreword written from Salman Rushdie. Ronald Dworkin wrote a commentary and curators Elisabeth Sussman and Tina Kukielski of the Whitney Museum of American Art composed an introduction. The book came out by Steidl and was exhibited by the Whitney Museum of American Art in the year 2006. In 2007, it was displayed in the Museum fur Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany. She talked about the project with photographer and historian Geoffrey Batchen for the 8th volume of Museo.

considers the anatomy of grief and the intricate systems we use to manage contingencies of fate and the uncertain universe. . . The abstract space that grief generates is often marked by an absence of language. . . Results are unpredictable; the void opened up by loss can be filled by religion, nihilism, militancy, benevolence—or anything.

Taryn Simon maps, excavates, and records the gestures that became entombed beneath – and within – the [Fondation Louis Vuitton’s] surfaces during its five-year construction. Designed by Frank Gehry, [the Fondation] was built to house the art collection of Bernard Arnault, one of the world’s wealthiest individuals and owner of the largest luxury conglomerate in the world [LMVH]. Simon collects this buried history and examines the latent social, political, and economic forces pushing against power and privilege. . . . Items include copper and aluminum cables sold to scrap dealers; cement used by a father to build the walls of his daughter’s bedroom; and an oak sapling that a worker took to Poland, planted, and named after his boss. The custody and movement of these objects transform their value, as they pass from employer to worker and, ultimately, to artist.

The waste is stored in a steel container reinforced with concrete, at a radon nuclear waste disposal plant outside of Moscow. It will remain at the radon facility, Simon explained, “until its radioactive properties have diminished to levels deemed safe for human exposure and exhibition—approximately one thousand years after its creation.”
