Installations from waste books
Available for show!
is a special world I have created using old books as building materials.
There are fantastic towers, houses, spirals and labyrinths in this
world, however these are formed in the same way that books can be found
in everyday life; books in piles and in rows, as they are on our shelves
at home. This book world is inhabited by small personages: people or
animals, travelling through the books, climbing on them, even eating
them - like bookworms. All small sculptures are modelled from old paper
- the same material the books are made from. The exhibition is made in
homage to books and readers and fits very well in public libraries.
