Alex Farrar The 'suits' Archived
Publisher 7.45 Books (extended)
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 Stéphanie Dondelinger, with texts by Laura van Grinsven and Robert Barry.
