Ann Shelton: a library to scale
Frankfurt Book Fair, New Zealand Pavilion, 2012

“There is a sense in which things become real through their repetition. a library to scale records a likeness of a collection of scrapbooks, a visual re-enactment of a compelling collection of books; it engages us in a process of recovery, retrieval, and re-presentation. It seeks to bind Frederick B. Butler’s project anew, to look back on it from the very particular time and space of the now…”

– From the artist’s statement for the exhibition a library to scale
