Dutch artist Frank Halmans explores themes of domesticity and memory through his sculptural installations. His series 'built of books' employs vintage publications - the selected titles have no particular meaning and are not exceptional literary works - which he arranges into stacks. Lining them up along shelves, he carving windows and doors through each, creating sets of imaginary buildings and interiors in each section of volumes. In a way these spaces which he slices through the books, stand as a metaphor and the idea of moving through something, whether it be a literary passage, or a physical expanse.
