Erik Kessels & Thomas Mailaender
BOOK WORM contains a visual collection of both artists re-appropriated from many other pictorial books. The book is made in an edition of 13 copies and each book will be displayed in a plexiglass case for a period of time. But inside the book’s display case, there’s something brutal going on: the book made by the two artists is slowly been eaten by very hungry booklices, silverfishes, termites and other insects that like books.
The book and the performance belong together and is offered as an edition.
