Bibliothek/Library

Li Silberberg introduces us to her long-term project Bibliothek/Library, which she has been continuously developing for 22 years in more than 40.000 hours of work. One could say that she is inscribing her life into these artist books, which are becoming sculptural works through the factor of time and the technique of treating the single pages in meditative daily sessions with her plain hands and ink. The result is an overwhelming library installation with a powerful and soulful voice, which involves and touches us instantaneously. The impressive volume consists of 181 artist books and 40 sketch and diary books. The public library, which will happen to own this installation within its public space, will be fortunate to exhibit this metaphor of the self-conception of a library as a location in which knowledge is acquired, communicated and shared as well as preserved.
