This coming Saturday, December 27, I will install One Swimming Pool on the floor of the Teijin auditorium at the Stedelijk Museum. Visit the auditorium between 10 am – 6 pm and watch the pool as it appears. Note this is a one day event, and the final in a series of three such demonstrations. It is connected to the exhibition On the Move. The swimming pool will remain on view in the auditorium during the weekend. More info on the website of the Stedelijk.
Sarah Bodman of the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE Bristol chose my newest book Wiederholungszwang as her holiday recommendation this year on the Artists’ Books and Multiples blog. You can read her post here. Meanwhile there also seems to be a nice gift available for under your invisible Christmas tree here.
In the December issue of Streven magazine, literary scholar Jack van der Weide discusses my work by looking at four very different books I published. The article is in Dutch. Read it in Streven cultureel maatschappelijk maandblad, year 81/number 11, or here.
On December 21 there will be a short tour through my exhibition Elisabeth Tonnard Artists’ Books 2003-2014 at the Van Abbe museum. I’ll highlight a few themes in my work. It starts at 1 pm in the library and ends at 3 in the DIY archive (where a selection of books will be available for closer inspection). You can sign up here.
