Books as victims of Erosion
London - Arab Today

Books as victims of Erosion Inspired by his travels to Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, artist Guy Laramée sculpted a mountain landscape on 24 printed volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica. First published in Edinburgh in 1768, Encyclopedia Britannica officially put a stop to its print version in 2012, after 244 years. This project- entitled Adieu- marks the ending of the printing process and, according to My Modern Met, makes a powerful statement: like so many mountainous landscapes, books and knowledge in general are seemingly the victims of erosion.
Laramée explains, “My work, in 3D as well as in painting, originates from the very idea that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation… Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS.”  Feel free to share your thoughts regarding this art installation, we would love to know your opinion!
