Wood Books

2006-2009

 

Carved & painted wood, metal and mixed media 
7’’ - 24’’ 

 

Böröcz created over 20 book-shaped sculptures for the exhibition at the Petofi Museum of Literature in Budapest. 
The book is transformed to a display of disassociated objects that reference language. Several of them are kinetic, where, for example, shoes spin around on a carved wooden book. One piece also functions as an acoustic instrument and was used in a performance at the opening of the exhibition by the musician, András Dés.
