BookMare at Camberwell Space comprises an exhibition, performance and discussions exploring how artists have used books as concepts and components in their practice, here often causing disquiet.
Packed into two days, the gallery space will be a focus for the engagement artists invest in books. The exhibition will include works from John Latham’s film and book-event archive, Damien Hirst’s commercially produced ‘I Want To Spend The Rest Of My Life Everywhere With Everyone, One To One, Always, Forever, Now’ and ‘et in arcadia’ by Helen Chadwick. landscapist (an ‘opening’ event) will be performed at the opening night and includes works by Hiromi Tshua, Finlay Taylor, Susan Johanknecht, Kate Scrivener, Alva McKenzie and Eli Zafran. Mark Harris will be creating a new sculptural work for the space which further explores his book object-defense series. Talks will include Arnaud Desjardin, a leading theorist and publisher of artists’ books, and Les Bicknell, whose practice focuses on the book and a contraption for holding and accessing ideas. Claire Louise Staunton will present Book as Event: Latham's Language of Form.

BookMare is curated by Susan Johanknecht and Finlay Taylor.
