> ROADSIDE PICNIC (JUSTIN WIGGAN) – THE DOBERMAN VARIATIONS (A Book That Is Designed To Be Destroyed) by Kelly Koo

Sometimes in order to create, you have to destroy, and this concept applies to ‘The Doberman Variations’, a book of photography by Oona Lurås Wiggan that documents the performance of the same name by musicians Roadside Picnic.

Justin Wiggan of Roadside Picnic performed ‘The Doberman Variations’ at four different arts events in Norway this year, and the book is filled with poignant, black-and-white captures of his shows.

“The Doberman Variations was a live investigation into the possible connecting theme of three unsupposedly disconnected topics based on the artist’s obsession of Grace Jones, Dobermans and abandoned theme parks”, reads a description on the website.

If you’re one to keep your books neatly stowed away on a book shelf, this book prompts you to do something different—rip it apart completely.

By tearing the book apart and rearranging the mosaic of paper, a password that contains the link to download video and audio recordings will be revealed. Read about it here.
