The Walk Book
€ 230.00

The Walk Book collects and preserves some of the words and dialogues that are part of Janet Cardiff’s walks, transposing them into a literary form and yet dissolving all possible determinations and codifications.

The Walk Book works like a garden, inviting you to follow its paths, which branch off in different directions. Like a labyrinth, the book has more than one entrance. You may enter it to read the texts, to look at the pictures, or to hear the artist’s voice on a CD included in the book as it leads you through the texts and images. It’s about the disappearance of places and memory loss, but also about offering something unique to whoever picks up the book, something that participants take along with them in time.
