Dimensions: 33 x 21 cm

I Love You is a project by Bani Abidi about the discretion of romantic love, about it being silent, shy and hidden. The silence of the flick book and the inaudible mouthing of ‘I love you’, animates the reading of this book, adding a tactility to the feeling expressed by the three words. These flick books were first produced by the artist during an artist residency in Lahore in 2003 and were given to friends, to be passed onto others whom they loved.
