The word “maze” usually conjures up images of verdant hedges perfectly pruned into sinuous shapes, but this is not true of the maze with the punning title, aMAZEme, at the Southbank Centre’s Festival of the World. Leafy walls have been substituted with over 200,000 old and new books in the Clore Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall. Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo were both inspired by the fingerprint of the Argentinian poet and writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986) to create this labyrinth, with walls 2.5 metres high. All tomes will be donated to Oxfam after its closing date.
