Filling Monospaces

Laura Kerr


Poem objects created from a series of out-of-print books from 1958 that were part of a seminar on art from the Met. Kerr has removed the original loose art prints that each book contained in a front sleeve, and replaced them with prints of her own art – in dialogue with the subject and themes of each book. Each book and its print are available for readers to open, touch, remove and replace (or not). 

5 books (10″x13″ each) with 4 prints (9″x 19.5″ each) on handmade paper.

Featured in POÈME SBJKT, an exhibition of works of literature both on and off the blockchain that enhance, reinvent, and reimagine the relationship between text and image, analog and digital, blurring and challenging the lines that seek to divide.

POÈME SBJKT was curated by theVERSEverse in partnership with L’Avant Galerie Vossen and took place at Librairie Métamorphoses from May 25 – July 15, 2023.
