800 METER COETZEE
Client: De Balie, Amsterdam
Project: Spatial installation for Coetzee Festival in 2010.
To mark the 70th birthday of Nobel Prize winner J.M. Coetzee, the Balie cultural centre organized a festival in honour of the celebrated South African writer. In the installation designed by Archetypisch and SuopuLab, every line of Summertime, Coetzee’s latest novel, was cut out and glued together. His 297-page book became an 800-metre-long strip that meandered through the spaces of the Balie.
