«A-Z, Elf Shot Lame Witch (Rosemary’s Baby)», books, perspex and wood, 300 x 300 x 700 mm, 2007. The work is a small fraction of an ongoing collection of books that are referenced or have some relevance for the narrative in several of my favourite films.
The books are chosen on the criteria that they appear as physical objects in the films, but they can be both existing or fictive books – meaning this library has books that have been published in the real world and books that do not really exist. For Friday the 13th the books chosen are all from Rosemary’s Baby (1968).
