Edition of 10
Launched last fall, this wooden box functions as a portable exhibition, and contains six silkscreens and six artists' books. In the spring of 2014, Olaf Nicolai was working at the Studio Geddes, where he produced a series of six drawings over three days. His labour was captured by a surveillance camera, and the tapes - one per drawing - were sent to his friends (Italian artists Elisabetta Benassi, Lorenzo Benedetti, Stefano Chiodi, Mario Codognato, Luca Lo Pinto and Francesco Stocchi), who were requested to describe their contents in a text. The bookworks contain reproductions of the drawings alongside the descriptions, and the silkscreens reproduce the works to scale.
