Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller The House of Books Has No Windows
Two-volume slipcased catalogue that accompanied the critically and publicly acclaimed Edinburgh Art Festival Exhibition at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Summer 2008. Cardiff and Miller work together to make immersive, imaginative installations which engage all of the viewer’s senses in the creation of fictitious realities. Their work has been at the forefront of international attention since The Paradise Institute won a special jury prize at the 2001 Venice Biennale.
This two-volume publication is both a catalogue to the exhibition and a compendium of notes and drawings for as yet unrealised works. With one volume containing texts on and images of the seven major works exhibited, and the other bringing together sketches, drawings, notes and ideas for works that either may or may not one day be made, the publication offers a range of routes into the Cardiff/Miller imagination.
