The 'Biografias VI' by Alicia Martín art installation stacks a heap of books into a public space. Participating in the International Paper Biennial in The Netherlands, the artist creates a bold sculpture featuring hundreds of books that appear to be spilling out of a downtown museum window.

Embracing knowledge, the mesh wire cage installation holds countless books that are suspended in the air, remaining frozen despite outdoor weather conditions.

The Spanish designer is known for producing similar work in her native country. Her pieces always aims to evoke the element of surprise and 'Biografias VI' is no different. Situated in the heart of a busy street, this clever and whimsical art installation embraces the power of books in our tech-fuelled society.
