Christophe Daviet-Thery has the pleasure to inform you that he will be at the
Art Libris /Barcelona from 23rd to 26th April 2015
“je suis un livre. Achète moi maintenant” A.R Penck
Christophe Daviet-Thery is a bookseller and publisher in Paris, often questioning the exhibition, use and representation of books. In 2009, the Swiss collector, Christoph Schifferli, was invited to curate an exhibition at his gallery. The show was called “Books on Books”, and presented 26 artists’ books that were, in one way or another, about books or their representation, including work from Bruce Nauman (Burning Small Fires, 1968) to Batia Suter (Parallel Encyclopedia, 2009).
The same year, he asked the graphic designer, Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié, to oversee the catalogue, even if it would exist as a book independent of the exhibition. It addressed the issue of reactivating the exhibition in book form.
Continuing in the spirit of the above exhibition, and as an echo and apparition in the context of an art book fair, the work presented has been chosen as meta: books within books, books using imagery from books, as if in a game of mirrors.
