Anja Lutz - Marginalia
'Marginalia' draws our attention towards the territory of the overseen elements coexisting in the realm of the book itself. Text and image content of several art books designed by Anja Lutz withdraw to let appear the non-descript details: the margins, the edges, the backgrounds, the spaces between the lines … Each book is unique in its choice of format, material, layout, and rhythm. The selected pages underwent a process of transformation in which with surgical precision Lutz dissects them, layer by layer, removing the vital parts and revealing their skeleton. The results are filigrane grids, fragments of images and traces of the layout that form intricately layered compositions of voids, exposing the hidden relations between the pages.
