Part one, Second edition. By Robin Waart
The first in a series of works looking into what beginning (and ending) means – Part one is a collection of pages from English books and (mostly) novels, featuring only the words Part one/Part I/Part etc.
Technique/medium: Torn out book pages, dimensions variable (paper size between 10.3 x 16.5 and 13.9 x 21.5 cm).
A book publication bringing together 101 of these Part ones, printed in an edition 101 copies, each containing one original Part one was issued in July 2010 (book design by Jonas Wandeler).
Part one was awarded one of the Most Beautiful Swiss Books/Schönste Schweizer Bücher of 2010. A (second) “market” edition of the book, printed in 202 copies and 22 slipcased copies (containing an original Part one), was issued for sale from June 2011.
