Original Fotokopi

Original Fotokopi is about a pair of Danish bookkeeping stamps which interact on the pages of this hand­made publication. Like a large printing sheet which is folded down to 28 pages, a dialogue between the two rubber stamps unfolds. Each stamp’s name, a ‘Fotokopi’ or an ‘Original’, competes for their own space. By only being able to refer to the names which the stamps carry and not the documents they stamp, their meanings are made redundant. Which is the copy and which is the original? Neither. They cancel each other out. Every copy of this publication is unique”, an eloquent discussion about authenticity using only the two words from the title scattered across the pages, stapled, 29,5 x 21 cm, 28 not numbered pages, numbered/10, n.p. 2017
