London – Rachel Khedoori
Until the end of July, the London branch of Hauser & Wirth will host an exhibition of new work by Rachel Khedoori. On this occasion, the artist presented The Iraq Book Project, an ongoing documentary piece consisting of a chronological compilation of internet news on the Iraq war. The work began in 2003 and will continue throughout the duration of the exhibition, with articles being compiled, printed and added to the books. Presented as a series of large books on tall tables, the articles are sourced from a wide range of news translated into English, highlighting the way in which perceptions of an event change depending upon time and place.
