The Main Cast, 2019
The Main Cast is a series of books, based on a list that has been lying around in my studio for a while. It’s a list that I’ve been working on while reading, containing descriptions of places that with only one word can evoke a range of associations/images/meanings (For example: The Cave, The Library, The Theatre). I have selected 8 of them, and made a book for each word.
The books are shown together in a vitrine, closed off with a glass plate. The viewer is unable to touch and open the books, and in this way left to his/her own associations with the word. I like how each place that I took from a story has now turned into an object, and how they, in a way, have become characters on their own, waiting for their moment to enter the stage.
