Anouk Kruithof’s Book Wall June 6, 2013 – Posted in: Books and Art, Installation

Anouk Kruithof likes to “invent new things out of fragments of the past”
So it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the book is at the center of her work. Enclosed Content Chatting Away In The Colour Invisibility is an installation that reinvents itself everytime it appears. 

Comprised of about 3,500 books, many published in the old East Germany, the wall changes each time it is constructed. Using the size of the books and the colored page ends as her palette Kruithof builds these unique walls where books become colored bricks.

Each time the wall is installed it is accompanied by a video loop and a limited edition photograph.  

Caution: The following video features lots of books falling down.
