Many of Hodges’ sculptures are forged from humble, even overlooked materials that are transformed through his touch, conjuring both memory and imagination. A gesture of inclusivity, rearranged for Bill relies upon participation: collectors are invited to build the work themselves by following the artist’s simple instructions and bending the book’s unique photograph pages to realize the final piece.

rearranged for Bill revisits an earlier work completed in 1996, entitled Arranged, which also combined random still lives of found flower images folded into a freestanding object. The new edition’s title pays homage to Art Resources Transfer founder Bill Bartman (1946–2005) and proceeds from the sale of the 2021 limited edition will benefit A.R.T., an organization committed to distributing and publishing books on contemporary art while interrogating the shifting social roles of the library and the printed book.

The special limited edition artwork is presented in a numbered mailer box, on the occasion of the release of Phaidon's new monograph, Jim Hodges. Each edition is accompanied by an artist statement and illustrated instruction guide for simple at-home assembly.
