Boundless Objects

04 August - 31 October 2018

Curated by Heléne van Aswegen

An exhibition of artworks inspired by the bookbinding process. The exhibition is curated by Heléne van Aswegen, the acclaimed artist’s bookbinder whose work involves the exploration of the book as an artistic medium. As the curator of this show she has sourced and commissioned pieces that investigate, explore, and challenge the basic techniques and materials of making a book. Participating artists include Keith Dietrich, Christine Dixie, Neil le Roux, Ian Marley, David Paton, and Emma Willemse, among others. Manual book production typically includes folding, sewing, printing, glueing, images and text, which are either explored or subverted by these artists to present their version of what a book could be.
