Mette Marcussen at the Biennale Book As An Art

The work of Illustrator Mette Marcussen exhibited in Russia



Until December 15th, works by the Danish artist and illustrator Mette Marcussen are exhibited at the Raduga Children’s Library of the Krasnoselsky District in St. Petersburg. The exhibition features her works for Historien om Daniil Kharms (The Story about Daniil Kharms), which she created together with the writer Martin Glaz Serup.


The framework for the exhibition is the Biennale of book graphics and illustrations titled “Book as an Art”, organized by the Pushkin Central City Children Library and the Committee for Culture. The Biennale’s events take place in libraries, galleries and exhibition halls, presenting the book as not simply a printed item, but as an art object.
