Idea Code 16670


This slim volume signals the conclusion of a project that began in 2007 when, without any prior experience or technical advice, Alex Farrar made a suit from scratch to wear whenever representing himself as an artist. Another, improved suit was produced in 2009, suggesting a course for the rest of the project: the work would conclude once a suit was made that was indistinguishable from a professionally crafted example. Following a series of replacements, such an exemplar was finally produced in 2016. This book is structured around reports and documentation produced by the conservators of the suits. Designed by St├ęphanie Dondelinger, with texts by Laura van Grinsven and Robert Barry.
