2010-11 A.I.R. Fellow Jiyoon Koo in collaboration with professional book-binder Susan Mills A.I.R. Gallery and 2010-11 A.I.R. Fellow Jiyoon Koo invite the public to Boring Stories, an workshop and literary event on Sunday, May 1, 2011 from 5-8pm. The event will be limited to 15 people and a donation of $10 is requested to cover the cost of materials. Due to the limited number of participants, advance registration is recommended. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to participate and make your donation.
Jiyoon has invited a professional book-binder, Susan Mills, to teach basic book binding.Each participant will be asked to bring to the workshop four sentences that describe special or disappointing events from childhood memories. These will be the basis for a narrative. In its final form, however, each book will be a “blank” book because the conclusion or climax will be missing and the point of the story will be absent, thus creating a void. Attendees will bind their own books, which they will take home with them. In addition, all stories will be bound into a single volume, a copy of which will be given to each participant; one copy will be left in the gallery space.
