Derek Sullivan's practice has long-featured the book as both form and subject matter, as well as the notion of the decoy (not to mention his love of the concertina). This beautifully designed project combines all three - a folded poster is wrapped around two stiff boards to suggest a novel.
Produced on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name, from September 15th to January 3rd, 2016 at Oakville Galleries, the title features a text by curator Jon Davies and photography by Toni Hafkenschied.
