Welcome to the release of our new book at IAC in Malmö on Malmö gallery night Sep 30, 2017 18-24!
At 21 on the night of the opening, there will be a reading by artist and writer Henning Lundkvist from a text produced for the book.
This book by Kevin Malcolm is co-published by Varv Varv and Woodpecker Projects and presents works from an ongoing artistic research project initiated in 2014. Its starting point is the Musée Guimet in Paris and the collection of Asian art amassed by industrialist and traveller Émile Étienne Guimet whose fortune was made in the production of a synthetic ultramarine pigment essential as a whitening agent. This project asks questions of European identity and the role of the artist as collector and exhibitor of images and objects.
Here is the artist Kevin Malcolm looking over the process at Narayana Press.
