An Invocation. Mike Nelson. Focal Point Gallery.

Using a selection of books chosen from the former Southend Central Library’s withdrawn stock, Nelson has created a permanent installation, concealed within the internal cavity walls of the new gallery. As the only visible record of the hidden artwork, this artist’s publication documents the covers of the five hundred and thirty books, which have been methodically documented and reproduced over 1,000 pages. This limited edition artist’s book (with PVC jacket) contains an interview between Director of Focal Point Gallery, Andrew Hunt and the artist Mike Nelson.
