How do we recognise an artist’s book when it becomes
an expanded practice?
Is the same method of sourcing, research and display of
materials used in books and collections alike?
Can the space where the book is made and exhibited be
considered an artist’s museum?
These were my initial questions when I saw the Blackchapel
book work at the msdm house-studio-gallery in London
in November 2019
