Product Description

"This publication was put together during a brief 5-day residency (March 21-26, 2004) at communications bureau IB&CO, Ikast—a Danish town of 23,000 inhabitants. The project is part of the art biennial Socle du Monde which fosters a tradition of artists collaborating with local industries, initiated by the shirt manufacturer Aage Damgaard who invited Piero Manzoni to work there in the 1950s. The 2004 edition of this show is curated by Jacob Fabricius. The photographs and stories herein were gathered through the local historical archives of Ikast, the press archives of Ikast newspaper, Herning Art Museum photo archive, and the staff at IB&CO and by contributions from people whom answered my local ad Danes in the Sun." -Aleksandra Mir
