Anja Kirkeby explains the topic of her presentation (in Danish): "I use books as the material in my present work and process them in different ways. I have washed 70 books in my washing machine on different programmes in order to see how paper, binding, soap, spindry and other factors influence the sculptures. I took them out of the machine and dried them exactly the way they came out. Now I know a lot more about the effect of washing in a machine, about the difference between a sculpture and a lump of papier-maché and what soap and fabric softener does to the colour of the items. The proces emphasized discussions on: what is art (and what is not), is changing a book blasphemy or transformation from one artform to another, and is a book only a book when it is readable? By exhibiting my books I have experienced what happens when we meet the unexpected on our way through everyday life, and the necessity of being provoked to see and grasp the ordinary in surprising new ways."
