Wim Botha at The Venice Biennale

South African Artist Wim Botha has prepared an incredible work of carved books for the Venice Biennale.  This major contemporary art fair began in 1895 and happens every other (odd-numbered) year. 
The show is open now and will run until the 24th November.
The Exhibition in the South African Pavilion is entitled Imaginary Fact and includes Wim's installation - Study for the Epic Mundane.
The books are bolted together, sculpted and suspended.
I love the different shades of white and cream, with the grey-black of the print showing through.
