Pol Merchan – The Other I
< / >

»The Other I« is a book-object by Berlin-based artist Pol Merchan, which was produced as two unique 64 page copies, each bound in a coptic cloth cover enhanced by an embossed title. It compiles short fictional insights into the lives of several gender-bending individuals. »The Other I« was first presented as part of the exhibition »Dissident Desire« on June 9th in 2013, at District in Berlin. DICEY rendered the writing into a fitting design by giving frail foothold and rhythm to the single paragraphs, and by creating a strained balance between the raw and low-tech print technique of risography and Esther Everding’s high-end and delicate hand-binding.
