This gorgeous two-volume set collects two artist’s books by French artist Yto Barrada (born 1971), both of which are proposed as mock guides: "A Guide to Trees for Governors and Gardeners" and "A Guide to Fossils for Forgers and Foreigners".
"A Guide to Trees for Governors and Gardeners" is a satirical guide for urban landscapers on how to prepare cities for the arrival of dignitaries. Accordingly, advice is offered on painting and cleaning; fruits, flowers and weeds; flags and music; traffic islands and palm trees. At first seemingly reasonable, these directives gradually begin to suggest something amiss behind the patriotic Potemkin-esque facades.
"A Guide to Fossils for Forgers and Foreigners" presents research on Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. The arid terrain between the mountains and the desert is home to a cottage industry of excavating, preparing, forging and selling fossils. Barrada’s research is documented in guidebook format.
