The Metamorphosis Library Exhibition

13/05/2014 - 31/07/2014

25 years of Russian artist books from the LS collection Van Abbemuseum (1989-2013)

Over 25 years in the LS collection developed a number of key points, including the artist's book. The exhibition The Metamorphosis focuses on the interaction between genres in the book arts and examines how Russian artists over the past 25 years have dealt with the book as artistic means. The choice from the LS collection shows a penchant for seeing the artisan quality in the finish of the books. In addition some projects have a more experimental nature and question the classic feature of the book. Another striking feature is the interest of the Russian artists in the interaction between object and language.
