Since 2014 artist and writer Shubigi Rao has been working on a ten-year film, art and book project, Pulp: A Short Biography of the Banished Book, about book and library destruction, and the book as activism and resistance.
Following the release of the first volume in 2016, THE WOOD FOR THE TREES presents documentation and material from this project’s second volume. THE WOOD FOR THE TREES functions as a visual bibliography of the texts, people, and sites encountered during her project. One of its aims is to explore the connective tissue that exists between artists, writers, printers, academics, bibliophiles, shadow library activists, librarians and other cultural custodians, and various defenders and supporters of print and open access to knowledge.
The book Pulp II: A Visual Bibliography of the Banished Book will be available at a special launch price, price TBC. The photographic prints in the exhibition are also for sale, price upon enquiry.
