books on books

books on books by Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié, 2011

This book project ensued from discussions between Christoph Schifferli,Christophe Daviet-Thery and Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié.

In september 2009, Christophe Daviet-Thery invited the swiss collector Christoph Schifferli to curate an exhibition at his gallery. The show was called “Books on Books” and presented 26 artists’ books that are, in some way or another, about books or their representation.

The same year, in december 2009, Christophe Daviet-Thery asked to Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié to take care of the catalog even if this book works independently from the exhibition. He invited Jonathan Monk and Yann Sérandour to have a conversation about 12 books: Bruce Nauman, Burning Small Fires, 1968 – Richard Prince, American English, London: Sadie Coles HQ and Cologne: Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2003 – Wade Guyton, Zeichnungen für ein grosse Bild, Cologne: Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2010 – Jonathan Monk, Cover Version, London: Book Works, 2004 – Mike Kelley, Reconstructed History, New York: Thea Weistreich and Cologne: Gisela Capitain, 1990 – Allen Ruppersberg, The New Five-Foot Shelf of Books, Brussels: Editions Micheline Szwajcer & Michèle Didier and Ljubljana: International Centre of Graphic Arts, 2003 – Claude Closky, Vacances à Arcachon, Paris: Editions Galerie Jennifer Flay, 2000 – Alejandro Cesarco, Dedications, New York: A.R.T Press, 2003 – Martin Kippenberger, The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s Amerika.
