Library Night 2019 at Garage Library

20 April 2019


As part of the annual all-Russian Library Night, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites visitors to the presentation of the Single Copy project dedicated to the medium of the artist’s book. Featured in the event will be artists Lyudmila Baronina, Haim Sokol, and Tatyana Faskhutdinova commissioned by Garage in 2019 to produce artist’s books.

Launched by Garage Library in 2017, Single Copy is an annual project fostering the development of the artist’s book in Russia and the formation of its own artist's book collection. Every year, the library commissions three Russian artists to produce unique works in a single copy edition that become part of the Museum's collection after the current stage of the project is over.

The 2019 participants include Lyudmila Baronina, Haim Sokol and Tatyana Faskhutdinova.

Made using various techniques, Lyudmila Baronina’s book Fjord is a fictional story of an abandoned hotel which exists in real life, in Montenegro.

The handwritten book Vosstanie (Uprising) by Haim Sokol combines the author’s drawings with texts, both written by the artist and taken from archival sources. It tells the story of an uprising which is not specified or described in detail but rather appears as a metaphor of history.

Tatyana Faskhutdinova’s book Den v Derevne (A Day in the Country) is a graphic story based around the artist’s trip to the village of Kucher, located in the Seltinsky Region of the Udmurt Republic, where she experienced the local “village day” holiday.

The artists will display their books and answer visitors’ questions. The presentation will be moderated by Garage’s senior librarian Valery Ledenev.
