This event has ended.

The theme of the exhibition is the bookshelf. Up to now Iida has produced installations in which he turns books around, concealing their spines and facing their edges forward, so that all written information is hidden from view. He sees these as works of sculpture. For this exhibition he has carved book shapes from wood, the material from which paper is made, and lined them up on a bookshelf, creating a bookshelf in a state before it contains information. It will be displayed as an installation, a sculpture liberated from written information. Also on exhibit will be photographs and a video presentation of Iida’s book sculptures created from different approaches.
