BOOKS UNFOLDED is a series of collaborative installations based on Vassiliea Stylianidou’s artist’s book
“The Plotless Room_I Lie to History”. The book has been published in 2011 by Revolver Publishing, Berlin,
in collaboration with futura, Athens. “The Plotless Room_I Lie to History” deals with
the limitations of systems of order such as language, family, architecture and gender
as well as the relationship between text and viewer/reader, text and space.
BOOKS UNFOLDED VOL.1 intents to continue the circulation of concepts that
surround the artist’s book. Vassiliea Stylianidou gave the book to 37 artists.
She asked them to create an object/sculpture out of the book’s discursive,
material and aesthetic concepts in order to find a relation between their work and the book.
The 37 objects/sculptures will be presented on a construction
especially conceived for BOOKS UNFOLDED VOL.1.
