En 2012, l’artiste américain Jared Bark, s’est mis à empiler des livres dans les champs et les bois autour de sa ferme. Il avait cette image en tête d’une colonne de livres dressée au bord d’un champ entouré d’arbres. Après avoir travaillé sur les piles en extérieur, Jared Bark a déplacé le projet dans son atelier, où il a fabriqué toutes sortes de piles de livres : des colorées, des brulées, des effacées…Plus récemment, Bark a construit des piles verticales de livres qui sont ensuite passées dans une scierie pour devenir une «cant», terme désignant une bûche qui a été fraisée sur les quatre côtés. La verticalité élancée de ces sculptures fait référence à la fois aux arbres dont on fait le papier et aux anciennes colonnes autoportantes que Bark a découvertes à Pompéi. Book of Stacks, Stacks of Books rassemble pour la première fois dans un livre une sélection complète des piles que Bark a réalisées au cours de la dernière décennie.

American artist Jared Bark began putting up stacks of books in the fields and woods on his farm in 2012. All he had was an image in his mind’s eye of a column of books standing at the edge of a field sur-rounded by trees. After working on the outdoor stacks, Jared Bark brought the project indoors to his studio, making all sorts of different stacks: colourful ones, burned ones, effaced one… More recently, Bark has been constructing vertical stacks of books that are then run through a sawmill to become acant, a term for a log that has been milled on all four sides. The slender verticality of the sculptures reference both the trees from which paper is made and the ancient freestanding columns Bark experienced in Pompeii. Book of Stacks, Stacks of Books gathers for the first time in a book a comprehensive selection of the stacks Bark has been making over the past decade.
