Island is a new 238-page book edited by architecture practice Caruso St John and artist Marcus Taylor. It explores an island as a place of refuge and exile, including contributions from artists, writers, a museum director and a poet.
The book accompanies the the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. Responding to the 2018 Biennale theme of Freespace, curators Caruso St John and Marcus Taylor have reimagined the pavilion as an island, a new public space for performances, discussions and afternoon tea in the Giardini. This book is a parallel platform given to words and images.
