Published: Barbara Knezevic; Design: Peter Maybury; Printing: mm artbook printing & repro, Luxembourg, 2013; "This text is situated within an object, this book, which serves the strange task of becoming a stand in for another object. This book is an understudy object, a proxy that is never expected to perform. I have not seen the object it serves to mark or replace -a sculpture made by Knezevic, damaged and subsequently lost in a Scandinavian gallery -at least apart from photographs. Thus this object aims not only to echo and stand in for the lost one, but also to speak in a space alongside all of the others, represented here, or absent; in storage, disassembled or bought."
