The book collects 36 digital c-prints made by the artist during the process of preparing his exhibition at the Market Art Fair in Stockholm. The prints are wrapped in a silk screened tissue paper with texts (in Swedish) by Nina Bondeson and Henrik Björck Wigartz. Accompanying each set is a Ziploc bag containing fragments from the artist’s studio. The collected items that make up the book are housed in a hot-foiled rigid box.
The book is released in a numbered edition of 100. A special edition of 6 is also available, with a differing foil treatment on the box’s lid, containing an original drawing by the artist, with each box signed and numbered by the artist.
Linjen vill ha
en forskande blick, ett tänkande öga
linjen vill dragas, vill drapera, linjera, färglägga
ge linjen tid
ge linjen mer tid
ge handen tid och mer tid
ge ögat tid och mer tid
ge blicken tid och mer tid
