4th Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius – Rabbit & House

4th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2006

Theme: “Rabbit and House”


Time and Location:
5 December – 25 December 2006, Gallery “Arka”, Vilnius, Lithuania;
22–25 March 2007, Leipzig Book Fair, Germany;
1–6 June 2007, Seoul International Book Arts Fair, South Korea.

While opening one box after another, one envelope after another envelope, I took out artist’s books of different sizes and formats. These are the books that arrived at the “4th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2006”. I was overwhelmed with exciting feeling when 200 artists from 35 different countries of the world have sent the books created for the very specific theme of the exhibition; especially, when the theme is such unusual one “Rabbit & House”.  Hence, we have 2 cubic metres of books on rabbits and houses.  But, weren’t strange the themes of the previous triennials: “Diary: Eight Days”, “Apocalypse”, or “23 Sins”?  Might it be so that it is namely the theme that is the hot feature provoking artists to create and participate at the exhibition?  Have they noted the correlation of the topics?
