Satellite: Preview of the exhibition Book Nomad

Fri 12.04

Northing Space

Book Nomad is, as its name indicates, an ever-growing travel exhibition of art books initiated by abC Art Book Fair in China and curated collectively in a nomadic and global manner. It started in Beijing during the pandemic when international travel became nearly impossible and made its way through Southeast Asia into Europe. Seizing the opportunity, Northing will also open the concept bookshop within the exhibition room developed from the very first event at Northing Space, the pop-up bookshop titled 'Elephant in the Store'.

At each stop, five more books were selected and added to the tribe by the venue hosting the show. In Europe, it has been hosted by COMMERCE in Milan, JBE Books in Paris, in Berlin, and Vienna Art Book Fair. Now, it has reached its final destination, Bergen, with a collection of 61 art books focusing on “Asianness”. The exhibition will open at Northing Space on the 12th of April as a satellite event of the Bergen Art Book Fair. Northing has invited Danish artist Mette Sandfaer to craft the sculptural display system for the books.
