Comprised a series of accordion fold-out pages, this book transmits the dense textuality that defines Michal Rovners work on the printed page as well as her interest in the written word, time, and visual codes. As the latest instalment of the LiberArs book series, a collection of small-format artists books, Rovner pushes beyond the limits of writing to consider the residue left by time on the written and the printed word.
Michal Rovner (b. 1957) is a prominent Israeli video, photography and film artist. After studying cinema, television and philosophy at Tel Aviv University, she founded the Camera Obscura School of Art, the first photography school of its kind in Tel Aviv.
