The Classic of In Passing consists of three micro-books containing images from Taipei and Tokyo from 2017–2019. This publication extends 2015’s House, an artist’s book published by the Bordeaux Museum of Contemporary Art (CAPC). Produced by Inesa Brašiškė.

The multifarious practice of Vilnius-based artist Gintaras Didžiapetris (b 1985) thrives on paradox, and the navigation between past and present. Didžiapetris often uses memory as a springboard from which to articulate, question, or proliferate meaning. And while the base elements of logic or myth are perhaps insufficient ways to form narrative paths through the artists’ work, the unlikely collision of both go some way in describing Didžiapetris’ conceptual challenges.
