THE FORTUNE LIES ON THE ROAD

& THE SOIL SEEMS FULL OF GOLD

2014

Artist book

20 x 20 x 4 cm, folded posters, postcards, text, limited edition of 21.

In collaboration with Dorothee Haller (DE/FR),

This book accumulates our mutual experience in Slovenia where we wandered around in the city to discover the places, often abandoned; and where we collected things found in the streets. These objects became the basis for our work as we after collecting carried them around in dresses especially created for this occasion, to keep our “treasures” safe. These we used to play around with by their possibilities and by exchanging them and memories, as they are fragmentary souvenirs of a place, from the past and the present and the link for us to find a common ‘language’ of working together.

The book itself consists of different fragments which are demountable, like a map or a game board that has to be unfolded before being read or played with as a game.
