Twenty six Blank Rocks is a bombshell book: twenty-six lithographic stones mark the surface of each page with an imprint of crude oil ready to ignite. The origin of the book is a stone (to print as to build), the black surface is both a blank sheet and a palimpsest page saturated with writing where everything and nothing is possible to read, each page of the book is a anarchist standard where black ink becomes the essence, the energy of a revolution of thought as of gaze.
The series of 26 prints of lithographic stones has been credited by URDLA in Villeurbanne.
This book is the third part of a reflection on the work of Ed Ruscha and follows Some Belsunce Apartments (2008) and Various Samll Sparks (2014).
