Quick Crossword No.13.692 Ch’aekôri, 2016.
Posters, drawings and collections of objects. Variable dimensions.
Documentation Center Lugar a Dudas, Cali, Colombia.
The 17th Korean practice of the Ch’aekôri, which consisted in representing the erudite libraries, is reinterpreted in an art center in Cali. This is done by reorganizing some books of its documentation center using the hints of the quick crossword Nº 13.692. One poster is printed to each hint of these new categories for the library, suggesting some pages of certain books. This is done in two old typesetting machines at a local press called La Linterna using their archive of commercial cliches and lead or wood carved letters. Objects, a collection of erasers and some drawings of the library join this new classification scheme. This was an invitation and collaboration with Calipso press.

Photos, diagrams, drawings and scans coming from various sources are trying to understand the aims behind two different collections. One is the archive of the planet (Paris 1909-1929) initiated by the french Banker Albert Kahn. The other is the Civilização do Nordeste (Salvador 1963) gathered by Italian/brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi. All this information cohabits in a book that propitiates different narrations and times through its unfolding. The table of contents from the chapter III of the book Narrative of the voyage of H. M.
