Sam Stocker and TANA Gallery Bookshelf would like to invite you a live performance event held alongside Stocker's solo exhibition "A LIBER NOVUS" currently on view. The performing artists are selected by both Stocker himself and the gallery, exploring and experimenting the theme of individuality through various approaches such as theatrical performance, contemporary music, sound/spatial improvisation, self-made instruments, book reading and the likes.

For this "Book Launch" event Stocker will also present two books from which he will be reading during his performances, one a collaborative performance and the other a solo reading. The first book is a selection of sketches and writings made within a book. The second book is a selection of writings by the artist himself and includes texts from the “Taisho Democracy” period in Japan and from art texts and writings in the western world in the same period.

The original installation “A LIBER NOVUS” will also be extended for the performance day.
