Jessica Meuninck-Ganger’s first solo exhibition at GALLERY AOP revolves around one large artist’s book: 1.2 x 2.3 x 6 meters, when completely open. According to Meuninck-Ganger: ‘The larger than human scale book structure requires two handlers to manipulate and unfold its contents, and demands the arduous actions of opening, accessing, handling, and navigating the pages. Designed to be intentionally cumbersome and awkward, it initiates an interaction between the participants that closely mirrors the inter-personal exchange depicted in the imagery.’

Here are videos of my collaboration with Nathaniel Stern, entitled Distill Life. We are getting ready to pack up our finished work and send it to Johannesburg, South Africa for our show in January 2010. We’re excited about the finished pieces and we are very happy to get so much positive feedback on our work.
