Arcana Books Welcomes Eames Demetrios for Storytelling + Book Signing
March 3, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Saturday, March 3rd from 4 to 6pm, artist, writer, and geographer-at-large Eames Demetrios joins Arcana: Books on the Arts for an intimate storytelling experience and exclusive first book signing of his most recent limited edition publication Kcymaerxthaere: The Story so Far…(Folio 1).
The two-volume set highlights the first 138 installations that exist in Kcymaerxthaere (Ky-MAIR-icks-THEER), the parallel world started by Demetrios in 2003. Through imagery, text, and artwork the publication offers an analog way to experience the global art project and serves as a tool to share this endeavor with the global community that makes the project possible. Sales of the publication will fund its translation into the 23 languages that appear in the installations.
Kcymaerxthaere tells the stories of a parallel world through books, performances, Internet, embroideries, guided collaborations, but perhaps most distinctively through installations—especially physical markers (usually in stone, concrete, or bronze) and far more elaborate historical sites, which can be up to an acre in size, that honor the parallel world in our linear world.
One can think of Kcymaerxthaere as an illuminated manuscript where every page is in a different location. Come explore this rich parallel world and see how the stories connect and extend!
All welcome. RSVP encouraged.
