'Rule Book' is an extensive collection of guides, instructions, manuals and rules that have been amassed by Angela Bulloch. They are taken from sources as disparate as: parking restrictions, the Ten Commandments, the standing order of the House of Commons, hankie colour codes, Birkenstock care tips and the detoxification diet.

By displacing these rules from their social and political context Bulloch reveals their ‘man-made structure’ as well as a society that, in order to maintain a stable social structure, imposes regulations and controls on every conceivable form of activity. As such, the book forms an intriguing snapshot of society at the close of the twentieth century.

Angela Bulloch was born 1966 in Rainy River, Ontario, in Canada. She studied at Goldsmiths, University of London. The artist lives and works in Berlin.

In 1997, Bulloch was nominated for the Turner Prize and in 2005, for the Berlin-based Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst. In 2011, she received the Vattenfall Contemporary Art Prize, Berlin, as well as the Art Prize of the city of Wolfsburg.

Angela Bulloch's work spans many media, manifesting her interest in systems, patterns and rules, as well as her preoccupation with the history of shapes and human interaction. The 'Pixel Boxes' have become her most familiar work: Initially fabricated in beech wood with a glass front screen, their softly changing and pulsing colours distill and abstract complex visual patterns into simple shifting monochromes.
