Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens | Tools That Measure The Intensity of Passionate Interests
Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens
Tools That Measure The Intensity of Passionate Interests
Montreal, Canada: Horse and Sparrow Editions, 2012
40 pp., 17.6×25 cm, b&w risograph, staple binding
Edition of 200
Two of my favourite works from the Montreal Biennale are The Prophets (at the MAC) and The Golden USB (at VOX), both by the collaborative team of Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens. The former is a thirteen-metre-long table displaying graphs, diagrams and models crafted from various everyday materials such as wire, string, paper, coloured acetate, netting, etc. The latter updates the Carl Sagan Voyager Golden Record as a trade catalogue of earthly goods, which becomes a framework for an exhibition consisting of multiple videos and objects.
The above book, published by their own imprint in 2012, is available for $10 CDN from Art Metropole, here, and Librairie Formats, here.
