The book contains 32 original drawings made using a technique created by the artist, inspired by the method of relief surveys used in archaeology. The elements of the printing device and the hand rubbing, introduce by a sliding of the matrices, alterations and accidents during the process. The title Inukshuk, in Inuktitut – “Standing Man” is a name given by the Eskimos to the buildings of piled stones, which, emerging from the snow, evoke from afar a human being. As a caption to the photographic illustrations, the text describes artifacts produced by smugglers in Warsawska Praga, (Poland, 1989), and refers to the debates surrounding the attribution of “Art” status to the Inukshuk and to reflections on the origin of the Ready-made.
