David Kerekes' Notebook

Author and Headpress cofounder David Kerekes was asked to contribute to Detour, an international series of exhibitions organised by Moleskine, the Italian manufacturer of the splendid and expensive range of notebooks.

The exhibition kicked off in London in October 2006. Kerekes' notebook was among those of several writers and artists available to view by the public at several locations in the capital (his was at Stanfords, 12-14 Long Acre, WC2). Each notebook was contained in a glass chamber and could only be accessed wearing sterile gloves, an operation comparable to that of a scientist mixing dangerous chemicals.

From the official notes:

Detour is a small piece of the Moleskine journey, where interlacing stories merge. Curated by Raffaella Guidobono, this travelling group show features notebook creations by internationally recognized artists, architects, film directors, graphic designers, illustrators, and writers. Some works contain extensive stories; others are turned into pieces of contemporary art and design.

Detour events have taken place in London (2006), New York (2007), Paris (2008), Berlin (2008), Istanbul (Spring 2009), Tokyo (Fall 2009), Venice (Summer 2010), Shanghai (Fall 2010).

Image cover mezzogiorno
Mezzogiorno: Life. Death. Southern Italy by David Kerekes is a work of biography, autobiography, fable and fact, spanning three generations of southern Italian family life. Set amidst a landscape of peasant riots, vicious landlords, religious festival, feuds, the collapse of the Fascist party, and the tarantella — a world lost to the changing face of the twenty-first century.
