“Sometimes the fruits of the artist’s labour is realised when products from different lonely studios, untidy workplaces and too often small rooms can be put together to form one exhibition that was worked on together from different spaces. It is not at all unlike being a co author on a book. So that’s what we did…”
On 5 February 2014 Lizamore & Associates will host the opening of Co Author by Olaf Bisschoff. Acclaimed artist and curator, Gordon Froud, will open the exhibition. Co Author is the artist’s fourth consecutive exhibition that is centered around books. The artist’s fascination with books became evident in Biblioteek/Library (2013) at the Stellenbosch Woordfees, followed by Streeksbiblioteek (2013) at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees and Landmeter/Land Surveyor (2013) at the Aardklop National Arts festival in Potchefstroom.
