In Search of the last book (again)

Posted in ALTERED ART, ART, DESIGN, MY ALTERED ART BOOK PAGES with tags , , , on September 13, 2009 by echostains

Just a quick post today before work.  Well, I don’t know how I do it, but I have lost my Altered Art book yet AGAIN!  This book is taking me years to do, as I keep mislaying it.  I haven’t done anything in it for quite a while.  I was trying to come up with an artist to match up with the words I had chosen.  I had also put a ‘door’ on the page, but couldn’t decide what to put behind it.  I will have a proper look tomorrow and see what I can do.  Meanwhile, here’s the last page I completed;-

Aw, this has made me really nostalgic for it!  I must find it SOON!

One artist springs immediately to mind – artist Mona Hatoum. (b. 1975 Beirut Lebanon).  In her exhibition ‘The Grater Divide’ at the White Cube 2002 the artist used familiar objects on a larger scale, such as a fold out cheese grater that acts as a room divider.  Hatoum’s work identifies with being uprooted and living in exile.  Hatoum employs installation, sculpture, performance art and mixed media in her work, addressing subjects such as exile, the body, control, life death amongst others.  Her work is fascinating.  For a more in depth view look here.
