Lu Xiaoben (special edition)
Since Ruben Lundgren moved to Beijing in 2007 people have made comments about his height (which is 2 metres exactly). As a reaction to this constant stream of amazement and good intended jokes about 'the weather up there' we embarked on a three year project. Our aim was to deliberately confuse all this attention with 'being famous' and our hope was that this would turn into a self fulfilling prophecy. Which it did, somehow. This book is a document of that journey, and functions also as a life size ruler for anyone up to 2 metres.
The special edition of this book comes in a box with a signed and numbered archival pigment print (22 by 29 cm) and a DVD.
20 × 34 cm, leporello, published in an edition of 1500 copies by Badger & Press, Beijing, China, design by Liu Zhizhi (2010)
