Vladivostok: Riga, Vladivostok Lake Baikal ---A Work By John Hejduk
New York: Rizzoli, (1989). Item #014625
" I have established a repertoire of objects/subjects, and this troupe accompanie me from city to city, from place to place, to cities I have been to and to cities I have not visited. The cast presents itself to a city and its inhabitants. Some of the objects are built and remain in the city; some are built for a time, then are dismantled and disappear; some are built, dismantled, and move on to another city where they are reconstructed. I believe that this method/practice is a new way of approaching the architecture of a city and giving proper respect to a city's inhabitants." Photographs of the Russian cities combined with Hejduk's drawings, poetry, and projects as edited by Kim Shkapich. First wrappers edition, published simultaneously with cloth edition. 4to; 272 pp.; illustrated from photographs and drawings. Remainder mark; else a very good copy in original printed wrappers.
