This book by Bruna Canepa is conceived as a portable exhibition, the pages can be torn apart and mounted on the wall creating overlaps as she shows her original artworks. 

She developed this project during her residency in Cali after her stay in Florence and getting familiar with the “Farsa” concept in architecture, literally meaning “fake” is used to name the facades some buildings have on top of other facades. The collection features real and imaginary buildings of cali that are viewed from 2 points of view revealing that they are no more than a simple facade resembling a solid construction. 

This book is part of More is More, a collection of publications commissioned to artists, designers, architects and creatives about the relations between art and design in Latin America co edited by Jardin Publicaciones.
