Michal Rovner. Writings
Comprised a series of accordion fold-out pages, this book transmits the dense textuality that defines Michal Rovner’s 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 video, photography, sculpture and installation artist.
