The 100 limited edition artists’ book, is exclusively made for Meng Du: The Climb, The Fall, the artist's first solo exhibition at Fou Gallery, New York. Designed by the artist herself, each book is bound by a cotton thread dyed with tea,  signed and editioned by the artist. While the book plays an important role as an exhibition catalogue, it also continues Meng Du's exploration in art. Check our blog for The Story Behinds an Artists’ Book by Fou Girl Patricia Chen and Yiwen Han.

The standardized, mass-produced works look uniformed, however, the preciseness in parameter does not equal to exquisiteness and delicateness in craftsmanship.
- Meng Du

Fou Gallery and Meng Du would like to deliver the delicate texture and emotion of the work, through the dotted shadows, the textured papers and the gentle color of tea, and enrich our imagination towards the works. 

The book is now in the collection of Museum of Modern Art Library (New York), Thomas J. Watson Library of The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) and M21: 21st Century Minsheng Art Museum (Shanghai).

这本100版的艺术家手工书为《杜蒙:退火》展览特地设计,收录了大部分展览作品图片,由艺术家本人杜蒙设计,每本用茶水染色棉线手工装订,且有版数和艺术家签名。手工书不仅成为展览的一部分,也是杜蒙设计语言的延续。关于这本书的故事,欢迎阅读否姑娘Patricia和杜蒙的采访《一本手工书背后的故事》

“人们常见的标准化、流水线上出来的产品只是看上去整齐划一,参数上的精确不能被等同于工艺上的精致”
——杜蒙

否画廊愿意与杜蒙一起,将其作品的质感和情绪透过错落的光影、织物感的纸张与温润的茶染棉线传递到观者一方,丰富并延展其作品带给我们的诗意和想象力。

本书被纽约现代艺术博物馆图书馆,上海21世纪民生美术馆和纽约大都会博物馆图书馆收藏。
