Like a Moth to a Flame draws on the experience of the exhibition of the same name at the OGR in Turin, between 2017 and 2018, to recount how, over time, individual passions find their way into society and enter the cultural fabric of the city. The book traces the work done in Turin by the three curators: Tom Eccles, director of Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College in New York, Mark Rappolt, editor-in-chief of the British magazine Art Review, and the British artist Liam Gillick.
Liam Gillick’s photographs and the curators’ words retrace the origins and development of the exhibition, revealing its relevance. Texts include an in-depth discussion with Liam Gillick and Hito Steyerl, as well as a conversation between the curator Anselm Franke and Mark Rappolt. The book was designed by Liam Gillick.
