Georges Perec was a French novelist, film-maker, documentalist, and essayist, and also a member of the Oulipo group. Perec’s ‘Species of Space’ is a constellation of texts published in 1974 that investigates different spaces. Its primary focus is the order and system in which the texts are organised. This inventory is the theme of this book, which consists of essay contributions by nine artists, including Mohamed Camara and Kristina Jansson. Initiated by artists Cecilia Darle and Kristina Bength, the project also manifests in an exhibition. Their point of departure is Perec’s writings, in which limitations and rules become a working method that hints at an autobiographical latency.
