Allen Ruppersberg, ‘Remainders: Novel, Sculpture, Film’ (1991)
128 bound books with jackets, five cardboard packing cartons, and one signed paper bookmark on wood table.
An installation that mimics a publisher’s remainders display in a bookstore. The artist manipulated the presentation in provocative ways: inserting fictional titles and authors onto book covers; printing the back covers and inside jacket flaps of each book with the entire screenplay of a 1960s educational film that warns of the dangers of hallucinogenic drugs; and inserting into each book a series of full-page, black-and-white stills from the artist’s film archive.
