AVERE LUOGO by Nora Schultz
19 x 27 cm, 112 pages, Full color offset printed, Perfect bound, Softcover, Ed. 1000, 2011
"The catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition by Nora Schultz avere luogo, October 12 – December 31, 2010 at Fondazione Giuliani per l’arte contemporanea.
The final section of the catalogue is a special project carried out by the artist in collaboration with NERO. The 32 pages are part of a selection of over 2,000 70 x 100 cm test sheets originating from the Marchesi printing houses, used for the print machines’ start-up. The layouts of the books to be produced are printed on these sheets, one on top of another. This gives rise to a series of palimpsests, characterized by a stratification of levels which, randomly overlapped, create abstract images of an almost sculptural physicality. Given that this special project is composed of recycled material, each one of these catalogues, in a limited edition of 1,000 copies, is unique and original."
