under and so; even if afterwards — Book design
This artist book was made in collaboration with Marianne Skaarup Jakobsen and is the central element of the exhibition Concise Voids and Sediments at SixtyEight Art Institute (15 February to 15 April, 2019). Both the book and the exhibition explore the productivity of repetition, time, folds, and the language of objects as seen through the practice of Marianne Skaarup Jakobsen.
Each artist book is an exclusive handmade version of a limited edition of 100; where each page has been dyed in the artist's studio.The book does not consist of words but of objects absorbed directly into the pages. In this way, the ink develops objects between layers of paper, like fossils between layers of soil or rock. The cover of the book is printed with a century-old font by Erling Jørgensen at Chr. Jørgensens Bogtryk.
