Paul Etienne Lincoln: The Glovers' Repository

The Tenaciousness of Subterfuge


Featured image is reproduced from 'Paul Etienne Lincoln: The Glovers' Repository.' Paired with explorer Olaudah Equaino, 1745-1797, it is captioned, "Royal Navy Line Thrower's Glove, Ebony, Six Rings: Inner glove is hand-stitched cotton with single button at wrist: Eighteenth Century."

A beautifully produced book by a contemporary polymath capable of astounding feats of engineering and exquisite beauty. A book about gloves, a book that folds open to reveal two additional books exploring 24 actual gloves worn by deceivers and the deceived, this is one of those books that actually improves your life.

The Glovers’ Repository, by New York–based artist Paul Etienne Lincoln (born 1959), tells the stories of 24 characters who either practiced deception or were the unwitting victims of subterfuge. From Mary Toft who claimed to have given birth to a rabbit, to King Zog who survived 55 assassination attempts, the characters are all legends in their own right. Their lives are related by Lincoln with characteristic wit and are documented with photographs. This book was inspired by a large-scale installation by Lincoln, a vitrine containing 24 gloves, one for each character. Each glove rotated via a mechanism based on the workings of Big Ben. The book is bound so that, when it is opened flat, two small books of the characters’ stories are revealed, one left- and the other right-handed. The book then folds out further to reveal documentation of the installation.

Paul Etienne Lincoln: The Glovers' Repository at the NYABF

Just out from the exquisitely adventurous art and poetry publisher Christine Burgin, Paul Etienne Lincoln: The Glovers' Repository (subtitled The Tenaciousness of Subterfuge) is a satisfying, if mysterious, artist's book bound so that, when opened flat, two smaller books fold out to lay side by side. Together, they tell the story of 24 historical characters who either practiced, or were the victim of, deception. Each character is represented by one glove in this 2015 installation by Lincoln, who will sign copies of the book at the NY Art Book Fair this Saturday, September 17 from 3:30-4:30 PM in the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Magazine Store in the museum entrance lobby. continue to blog
