WAI, Garcia Frankowski and Vibok Works  present Shapes, Islands, Texts


WAI directors will be publishing with Sevilla-based Vibok Works a limited edition numbered (100 copies) book presenting paintings, poetry, collages and short essays exploring the activity of Garcia Frankowski.

About the contents of the Book:

Like a conceptual tryptique, Shapes, Islands and Text presents three working tools that although having the capacity to function autonomously, once placed on the same space have the potential to create new narratives. The publication focuses on three spheres of equal importance. The vademecum presents: Shapes that are explored through multiple strategies –from monochromatic paintings to collages of pure geometries; conceptualIslands that are not only independent from any all-absorbing discourse but that one next to each other constitute theoretical archipelagoes; and Texts that sometimes are pure form and other times are independent like islands in the ocean.


To access the crowd-funding campaign for the limited edition book go Shapes, Islands, Text.
