    About The Work

    Since the 1960s, Olivier Mosset has been an unassuming but pivotal figure in the discussion on how an artwork should function. His work for Three Star Books is a highly contemporary "do-it-yourself" book in the spirit of work being produced today by both individual artists and collaborative projects. In this book, the spectator can complete the work or not. The small ensuing sculptures, a coda to the long line of monumental pieces Mosset produced on the same theme, are whimsically small and light, in comparison to their precedents. While the Toblerone sculptures are references to the Swiss national repast, and to the military bunkers that dot the Swiss landscape, their very repetition reveals their most interesting facet: context.
