One Language Traveller accumulates sculptures from internationally acclaimed artist FOS, as if the book were a cabinet of curiosities. United on the pages of the book, the autonomous sculptures as well as the objects that FOS has created for fashion label Céline speak to each other in a new vocabulary of form.
The One Language Traveller is a character sprouted from FOS’ imagination. This explorer is a metaphor for how we humans try to understand our surroundings. FOS’ work explores the lack of an accurate vocabulary by pairing artefacts that each hold a hidden meaning. In doing so, he creates a language of objects and form, called ‘formsprog’ in Danish.
