A Scene in a Library | Edgar Leciejewski (the Green Box)
Edgar Leciejewski's new book A Scene in a Library is a journey through the artist's book collection and his notebook. It is an eyesight test on how we look and use books. A journey and vision on how time has built and changed our comprehension. It is also a cipher that links to a self-portrait or a photographic manifesto. In former times cipher would also stand for zero. Zero, nothing, zero of a function, a reference to the book itself as a functional object. A Scene in a Library is a repository of time that allows slowing down of the bare act of seeing and reading.
