Maleny Artists' Books

twenty artists presents works on a theme
without boundaries …
works of art realized in the form of a book

29 April to 24 May

Artists' books (also called bookworks) are works of art realized in the form of a book. They are usually supposed to be touched and interacted with, often with a specific predetermined sequence. All of their physical attributes are not visible at once. And in the process of manipulating them, their multi-layered approaches attempt to manipulate you, just as the sequence of a film or even an obstacle course …
The exhibition theme - without boundaries - is an invitation for the artist to explore the genre without any pre-set concepts. When we set boundaries – within our minds and within our arts practice – we are beholden to what has gone before, and we are held back by the barriers of conformity – when we approach the artists’ book without the burden of definition, our minds are open to create exciting and unique works of art.
