Artist Book: Ira Lombardía

Available online

This self-published zine documents Ira Lombardía’s journey in which she created a fictional artist and physically placed “their” work in the exhibition catalogue of dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, 2012.

The text, written by Lombardía herself, is almost a diary. She states her thoughts about the work, how she took photographs and bought the catalogue. Later she goes on to explain how she removed the pages of a particular artist from an original exhibition catalogues, and then placed the fictional artist’s work in its place. Lombardía has explained this book as a history of how she produced the artwork. Shop online More info
