Leonard Koren & Guests is a library and a live programme of conversations through which La Loge invites guests to introduce, share and address Leonard Koren’s work whose principle medium is publishing. An artist who defies categorisation, Koren uses books to share his astute observations of objects, rituals, people and places, paying particular attention to overlooked details while opening up new channels through which we can understand art, design, architecture, philosophy, ecology and anthropology. His body of work, dedicated to productive incongruities and unlikely comparisons, reflects a personal and professional pathway that is erratic and consistent, curious and engaging at once.
Over a span of two weeks, prior and during the event, Leonard Koren’s work—the full collection of twenty books, a selection of WET-magazines, images and print-outs—were available for public consultation in a temporary library developed by Deborah Bowmann in the temple of La Loge.
