“Paint in this project serves not as an image but as a material which covers and encloses. The blocks of colour partially or totally bathe the books’ covers, back covers, and spines, literally hiding their contents. Information fades layer by layer. Paint seals pages that will never be opened again. Each piece forces the authors and the titles to coexist. In groups of two, three, four, and up to five books, these diverse objects are now grouped as one thing, like a capsule, and obliged to tell their story”
