Via Roma 398. Palermo, a volume published by Humboldt Books to accompany curator Luca Trevisani’s experimental exhibition, Raymond, staged at the Grand Hotel Et Des Palmes, Palermo. Here, the ‘labyrinthine itinerary’ of Trevisani’s spatially and temporally dispersed exhibition was reconceived as a travel guide. Different paper stocks were used to establish structure. Acidic yellow signals the framing function of Leonardo Sciascia’s essay, ‘Documents Relating to the Death of Raymond Rousel’. An uncoated stock was used for a series of photographic images consisting of exhibition views interspersed within images documenting the hotel’s interior spaces. Due to the paper’s absorbency, the image sits within the page, rather than resting on its surface, a material echo of the works’ integration with the physical fabric of the hotel. Orange ink on coated stock was used for a series of artists’ written interventions. In this way, structure is provided for delirious contents that overspill and exceed it.
