Hiraku Suzuki perceives drawing as a way to excavate lines between pictures and language, and uses a variety of approaches to continuously expand the medium’s possibilities. He has also worked on large-scale murals and performed in collaborations with poets and musicians. This book gathers a selection of drawings by the artist from the past ten years, comprising over 200 plates of two-dimensional works and murals created with silver marker and spray paint. Each series is printed on different paper as separate booklets and bound together with codex bindings. The book also includes essays by specialists from various disciplines that give new insight into Suzuki’s practice.
