A CITY OF BOOKS
Evergreen is an installation of PVC banners hung on the railings in an air well near the store, inserted next to other banners already advertising various shops in Bras Basah Complex. The banner designs echo familiar book spines, but refracted through abstraction and repetition. Yet they retain a recognisability, suggesting that there is a visual system of books of which we are all subconsciously aware, which makes visits to secondhand bookstores in Bras Basah Complex feel so familiar.
