“Art is seldom touchable but books are designed to be touched. I like that.”
Poem objects created from a series of out-of-print books from 1958 that were part of a seminar on art from the Met. Kerr has removed the original loose art prints that each book contained in a front sleeve, and replaced them with prints of her own art – in dialogue with the subject and themes of each book. Each book and its print are available for readers to open, touch, remove and replace (or not).
An online and physical survey/group show of text-based physical artworks by TheVERSEverse in partnership with L'Avant Galerie and Librairie Métamorphoses.
