In collaboration with Vancouver’s Trapp Editions, the Contemporary Art Gallery published an artist’s bookwork by Isabelle Pauwels. Unfurnished Apartment for Rent details, in seven short screenplays, the interaction between a series of fictitious apartment dwellers. Forced through financial constraints to assemble furniture from the walls of their individual accommodations, these renters sacrifice more and more privacy as they cannibalize their dwellings for creature comforts. Pauwel’s bookwork was displayed in an installation designed by the artist in an exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery. Illustrations by Aaron Carpenter and Tyler Brett.

Produced and Edited by Trapp Editions, Vancouver. Published by The Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. Edition of 500 selfcover copies. Edition of  50 cloth bound, hardcover, numbered and signed by the artist.
