Garabedian's book is a photographic response to his eponymous one-year public sculpture, commissioned
by Kunst in de Stad/Middelheimmuseum, for the Antwerp Stadspark Public Figure plinth series in 2022—23.
With Import - Export, Friperie, Garabedian traces the aesthetic, linguistic, and affective economies borne of a
personal story of displacement and belonging. In keeping with the project's dialogic nature, he has invited for
the BOEKS exhibition six artists to engage with the sculpture: Sam De Buysere, Miles Fischler, Axel Korban,
Thor Salden, Stine Sampers and Joud Toamah.


For the occasion of the exhibition, their contributions come together in the publication Import - Export, Friperie: Selected Bales.
