The Artist’s Library
The Artist’s Library is a growing collection of titles that have, in one way or another, been relevant to the artist’s practice. They will be on view during the exhibition and become part of the P/////AKTSALON collection of books afterwards. Rodrigo Hernán-dez highly recommends:
- Laozi (author) | John Minford (translator, editor), Tao te ching (Daodejing): The tao and the power / Lao-tzu (Laozi), Viking 2018
- Patrick Modiano, Pedigree, MacLehose Press, 2016
P/////AKT is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary art that organizes and fa-cilitates large scale solo presentations through which the audience gets the oppor-tunity to gain insight in the thinking space of the artists.
P/////AKT provides a platform for exceptional, emerging artistic talents, who distin-guish themselves through their unique and authentic language and who are capa-ble of giving a different view on the current way of thinking. They are stimulated to work out new developments and are given the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience. Furthermore, P/////AKT always asks the artists to produce new work that relates to the specific nature and dimensions of the given space and to present their own mental space as an overall presentation within the given context.
