Installation view at Malmö Konsthall, SE – a project with EvaMarie Lindahl

 

About: The Blank Pages, 2014 is an installation of 4 bookshelves of 240 x 120 (x 80) cm, mdf construction, wheels, the entire Taschen Basic Art Series of 100 published books + 100 printed books each with a glossy cover and empty white pages. We were investigating the specific format and processes of selection concerning the art encyclopedia. The framework for this project is the Taschen Basic Art Series, but it might as well have been any other mainstream publishing house. We entered the project by asking the following question: Can you name one woman artist published by Taschen Basic Art? Is your answer Frida Kahlo? You are correct; she is one of the 4 women artists that Taschen ever published in this series that consists of about 100 books.
