Book of Fragment

Fragment - what remains of an ancient work; Part from a book, a speech. What to think about when building a book? A set of pages that narrate moments, clusters in libraries, cataloged knowledge strips. Pieces of a whole taken from its original context inherit new meanings. A series of quota codes taken from the collection of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation's Art Library enrich a thematic collection, from Geography and Cartesian graphics to the digitization of book pages in various languages. Punctuating this tripartite narrative, we find texts such as the Library of Babel by Jorge Luís Borges and considerations about the fragment in the center of history and visual culture. The texture of the pages in black contrasts with the stimulating colors of the risography. This compilation can be read sequentially or by disassembling the three pieces that allow an individual reading.
