The Library as Social Space in the Work of Christine Hill and Shooshie Sulaiman

89 - 2018

Although their work diverges on many points, artists Christine Hill and Shooshie Sulaiman both embrace the library as a social space that encourages engagement from the spectator including roaming, handling, reading, information gathering, social exchange and conversation. Using carefully crafted handmade books, as well as a range of appropriated books, Hill and Sulaiman tap into an everyday object that is both familiar in its form and at home in multiple social contexts, making it ideal for individual and collective consumption.
