Book Market >> Fw:Books >> This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below - Bart Lunenburg
One of the participants in the Book Market is: Fw:Books, an Amsterdam-published, independent publisher of art books, with a focus on photography. Several titles will be with them during Unseen, one of which is This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below by Bart Lunenburg, designed by graphic designer Hans Gremmen.
Where does a book begin and a building end? ‘This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below’ brings together many different facets from the artistic practice of Bart Lunenburg, and his explorations in the built world. Including reproductions of photographs, drawings, scale models, installations, film stills and exhibition views, this labyrinthine book is conceived as an imaginary building. The viewer-visitor is guided along foundations, corridors, rooms brimming with sunlight, radiant windows, concealed doors, enfilades, winding staircases, banisters, and a woven wall. The eyes of the artist fuse with the eyes of the built world, offering fresh reflections on what it means to dwell, remember and dream among the basic elements of architecture through which we daily travel.
