Kai Schiemenz: Arbeiten/Works / Spector Books (Leipzig, 2016)
22.8 × 31 cm, 136 pages
Designed with Markus Dreßen
This publication shows Schiemenz’ early architectural installations in relation to his sculptural oeuvre. Pictures of spatial works are arranged on the full offset print sheet, before being fold and cut into the 16-pages signatures constituting the book. The composition is therefore larger than the format of the book. Like the visitor of a building who has to be in movement in order to get an idea of the entire architecture, the layout reveals itself fragmentarily to the reader, by flipping the pages. The sculptural works are on the contrary contained in the middle of the page, immediately graspable in their entirety.
