Covered in a clinical (and washable) vinyl sleeve, this book seems to belong to a laboratory. Among its many white and light grey pages – representing the painted walls of a white cube – 39 works by Belgian artist Steve Van den Bosch are exposed. The photographs were taken by a forensic photographer, and the text, entitled “Event reconstruction from trace images: an original methodology”, comes from the Swiss Institute for Police Science. The book itself is number 40 in the list of works, and printed in a limited edition of 300 copies. Thanks to Roma Publications (Amsterdam).
