Magasin III Jaffa Books series of meetings with artists will host the artist Alejandra Okret to launch her new artist book "Illuminaries-Cats", part of a series of artist books titled "Illuminaries", which Okret started in 2021. The series is comprised of one of a kind handmade artist book, however Okret created a special printed version for the launch at Magasin III Jaffa Books.
Okret’s series of artist books, Illuminaries, is a continuation of a series of works called Trisim or The White Line. In 2020, during the world pandemic, in time of fear and uncertainty, Okret wished to bring light into the world. The book is drawn only with the white color (ink, acrylic and pigment) on tracing paper, in a wish to bright a darkened time. The story develops without words, so the viewers can tell their own story. Each book has its own box, making it a precious object that can be taken out to contemplate in a special moment.
