For the first volume in The Leporello Series, Heimo Zobernig makes optimal use of the accordion format, allowing rhythmic wording and typography to seamlessly transcend from individual words and phrases to shapes and structure.
Inhabiting a space between book and paper sculpture, the leporellos are printed on delicate Mohawk Superfine Eggshell paper. Each volume in the series is limited to 250 numbered copies and come in a bespoke rigid box, with the title hot foiled both on its front and on its spine, allowing it to sit comfortably in a bookshelf when not on display.
Heimo Zobernig is an Austrian artist widely acclaimed for his works in a variety of media, ranging from painting and sculpture to video, performance and site specific installation and design.
