from lost in the archives to lost in the bookstore. Curator Yam Lau has moved his apartment into a book and placed copies on the shelves at Balfour Books. Continuing to explore interesting alternate spaces for art, Lau's book of blank pages mimics the white walls of traditional galleries. Wrapped around the cover is a jacket upon which are printed pinhole photographs by Adrian Blackwell that were previously shown at Lau's apartment. Nestled between the welcoming blank pages is a series of bookmarks, each displaying books chosen by a particular artist. These bookmarks are also placed in other random books throughout the store.
It's fun to look for the books as they move around the store. Most recently, they were in the philosophy section being crowded by books on Wittgenstein. email@example.com
