272 pages minus 232 equals Celluloïd
272 pages minus 232 equals Celluloïd is an artist’s book, a radical, simple gesture. It re-appropriates the 272 pages catalogue of Hans-Peter Feldmann’s work (a collector-artist, who exploits images he doesn’t own), choosing to leave visible only the terms that apply to Feldmann’s work. This act of graphic hijacking serves to interrogate the ever-complexified notion of the signature, the ownership of words and ideas. Here, in just the sort of graphico-conceptual conjuring trick we like, the exploiter finds himself hoisted by his own petard.
