This illustrated talk is a case study presenting the ways of using ‘multiplicity’ in different approaches, in its various forms found in printmaking and artists’ books, based on our collaborative and individual practices. The different uses of multiplicity enhance, alter and influence the creation and the content of both mediums. How can multiplicity reconfigure the meaning of the print in artists’ books? An open edition can influence its contextual value, as in ‘Fragmented Memory’. It can also be a tool of homogenisation and unification, as in ‘Diversity scheme’. On the other hand, ‘Kinotaphia’ is a complete artwork consisting of multiple autonomous artists’ books, in a way that a series of seemingly identical or at least similar elements are presented as one. ‘Pocket Riot’ and ‘Disappearing’ enhance the importance of the artists’ book theme by the recurrent use of the same matrix. In ‘FFA (Faded Future Archive)’, the multiple is used as an overwhelming amplification. All the artist’s books presented were created with the use of printmaking techniques, such as linocut, etching, aquatint, collagraph, silkscreen on 3D surfaces, hot-stamping and contact printing.
