TERM: A book
PROPERTY OF: Tina Van Aeschot
DESCRIPTION : The object is part of a research into changing the meaning of words. It describes the elephant. It has an ambiguous relationship with the woman who gave birth to it as she regularily gives it to others in order to facilitate the next step in the research. It is tiny and tries to draw a fragment of history. It originates from the ancient writings and descriptions of changing worlds. It was once a ‘Carte Blanche’ until it was filled up. It stimulates memories of believing it was possible to know everything and memories of realising it wasn’t so. It changed when its completion became evident.
TECHNICAL: rectangular, white with black text of different sizes, cream coloured pages, drawings of elephant.
