Une semaine dans une cimaise [One week in an exhibition wall]
110 pages, black and white
30 copies
2014

Book realized after my eponymous performance and gathering a set of preparatory documents and traces produced during the week: sketches, notes, photographs and texts. Having lived an entire week in an exhibition wall, I decided to have the stock of available copies in the same wall. So the book reproduces the performance in my place. The buyer is therefore invited to put the book in an exhibition wall, in any other wall, or behind his library, so that the action continues.
