Derek Sullivan: Albatross Omnibus

Derek Sullivan
Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
Artists' Books
15.7 × 23 × 2.5 cm

The Power Plant’s 2011 commission Albatross Omnibus by Toronto-based artist Derek Sullivan involves new artist books, and a drawing and installation project. The commission’s core is a series of 52 limited edition books produced through print-on-demand technology. One full set of books is displayed in a grid-like formation hanging from wires at a height that visitors must use a stepladder to reach. Fourteen copies of each book were available for purchase in the gallery shop, with each title exclusively available for a single day of the 52 days of the exhibition. Each of the 52 books has its own title, while the full set shares the name Albatross Omnibus.

The exhibition extends into this catalogue that is comprised of two sections housed in a case. The first is an accordion-fold book that reflects the form of the wall and documents the exhibition, as well as the 52 artist’s book covers in full colour. The second is a 32-page, saddle-stitched reader that features texts by curator Gregory Burke, artist AA Bronson and writer Kathleen Ritter and is printed in green ink on green paper.
