KALEID editions selected one hundred books by forty artists based in ten European countries for one day in London.

As a selected artist I attended the panel discussion (see below for details) and was part of the curated exhibition and book fair that showcased the best artists’ books to an international audience. The editioned and unique artists’ books displayed original etchings, drypoints, woodcuts, linocuts, letterpress, risograph printing, embossing, bookbinding, ceramics, photographs, video, paintings, drawings, print on demand technology and paper engineering.

PANEL DISCUSSION // Friday 20th July 6.30 – 8pm

KALEID editions will chair a discussion panel to support artists selected for KALEID 2012 London. Guest speakers offer their firsthand experience on the facilitation and exhibition of artists’ books and how to appeal to private and public collections.

In December I will be exhibiting at Kaleid gallery in Shoreditch, London as part of…

The Grand Plasto-Baader-Books
2-24 December 2009

The exhibition will bring to life ‘the aftermath of an accident between a trolley car and a newspaper kiosk’, recalling Maud Lavin’s description of Johannes Baader’s original exhibition Das Grosse Plasto-Dio-Dada-Drama. Drawing inspiration from Baader’s original architectural feat, fifty pieces have been selected for their originality and conceptual response to the traditional book form. KALEID curator Deeqa Ismail challenges the viewer to consider not what a book is but what a book can be. Reaching out to an international network of artists.

Volume Study Prototypes
Material and process are the principle elements that influence the configuration of each book object. The form is constructed using systematic layering. Binding of the individual leaves / pages stabilizes and even generates the shape of the object. The bound edge is the single consistent structural element – this assigns a force from which the formation of the book develops. The Prototypes form a series of working models. They contain ideas about three-dimensional space and each becomes a visual document encapsulating the process of fabrication. The work challenges preconceptions of books and reading – animated by light and natural forces the surfaces of these books require a different type of visual engagement.
