Christof Migone
Millefeuille 2

03.09.15 – 01.10.15

Millefeuille 2 is a pile of one thousand blank pages torn from books. Christof’s library has been mutilated, again—the first Millefeuille dates from 2006. Millefeuille in French literally means one thousand sheets, leaves or pages. It is also the name for a type of pastry. Some books have no blank pages, quite a few have one in the front and one in the back, some have several. Christof rips out all of the ones he finds. On each page he writes the title and author of the book it is torn from, then assembles the layers and serves this pastry to all the bibliophiles.

Christof Migone is an artist, curator, teacher and writer. His research delves into language & voice, bodies & performance, intimacy & complicity, sound & silence, rhythmics & kinetics, translation & referentiality, stillness & imperceptibility, structure & improvisation, play & pathos, pedagogy & unlearning, failure & endurance.
