PIERRE LEGUILLON, The Museum of Mistakes, 2020
26,7 x 20,2 cm
HC, dust cover, 242 pp.
edition 800 of which 100 are signed, dated and numbered with dedication in print, ink stamp
including entrance ticket; here number 72
dedicated to Aditya Mandayam
published by Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, Switzerland

 

In August 2020 Edition Patrick Frey offered a special edition on behalf of the launch of artist’s book “The Museum of Mistakes”. When ordered any name could be given that would become ‘part of the publication’. It was not told how the name would become part of the book. This appeared to be an entrance ticket on name to The Museum of Mistakes for life. The ticket reads:

‘Ticket valid for Aditya Mandayam.
Ticket valid from August 20, through forever.
Ticket can be used for any visit.
Ticket can be used for an unlimited number of guests.
Please retain this ticket for future visits.
Food and drinks allowed in rooms.
Photographs welcome!’

Paradoxically the deceased Indian artist Aditya Mandayam (1983-2019) will never be able to make use of this entrance ticket. The same counts for special edition number 71 that is dedicated to Steven Parrino (1958-2005). A mistake, or what to think of this? KvG

Usually so-called artist’s books with texts by others than the artist involved are expelled from The Archive is Limited. This book invites to make an exception. “The Ooze” contains 49 pages of 144 that have been written by Aditya Mandayam. The front and back of the cover show drawings by the artist. “The Ooze” gives an insight in the thinking of Brud through theories and statements.
