Product Description

John Bock's latest artist's book combines over 150 video stills from his film "Skipholt" shot 2005 in Iceland, each with a corresponding drawing. Structured like a logbook of an expedition, it traces the path of the protagonist played by the artist himself, who embarks on a journey across the sea, volcanic plains and glaciers. The drawings read like notations of a journey, sometimes picture, sometimes diagram, peppered with word creations or theoretical explanations that reflect John Bock's thought bubble and reveal the conjured para zone to the reader. The book is at the same time an art object, packed in a corduroy bag, filled with 'KleinodtodSods' - useful everyday objects such as Q-tips, thread and safety pin - and equipped with the practical belt pouch, so that nothing stands in the way of one's own expedition.
