The House is in the Book: A Collaborative Work of Art
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: What is a “book artist”?
The House is in the Book is a collaborative work created by three artists who found ways to work during the pandemic while separated by continents and time zones. Andi Arnovitz, who had the original idea, lives in Jerusalem; Lynne Avadenka is in Detroit; and Mirta Kupferminc is in Buenos Aires. Emily Bilski, the curator, also lives in Jerusalem. We spoke with all of them about the project and their own contribution to it.
The work was presented by the Jerusalem Printmaking Workshop at the recent Biennale of Contemporary Art in Jerusalem, and you can watch the Jewish Art Salon’s video about it here.
