Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine (a project by Mette Edvardsen)

"A group of people memorize a book of their choice. Together they form a library collection consisting of living books. The books are passing their time in a library, sitting in chairs, walking around, talking together, looking out of the window, reading in paper-books from the shelves, ready to be consulted by a visitor. The visitors of the library choose a book they would like to read, and the book brings its reader to a place or setting in the library, in the cafeteria, or for a walk outside, while reciting its content."

I am the Verzamelde gedichten by the Dutch poet Hans Faverey, as well as the English translation Against the forgetting / Selected poems by the same author.
