Puzzle Series (2)
The ongoing Puzzle Series is an investigation of the support of the puzzle as the ultimately constructed image within a climate of exponentially increasing image production, ingestion and circulation. Stock images of mountains were used as support for the puzzles and were screen printed in CMYK on opaque white plexiglass. The different source images are fragmented in pieces and reassembled as new landscape compositions.
Puzzle Series (2) was on display during Signals from the Periphery, an international graphic design event initiated by Elisabeth Klement and Laura Pappa. The project took place from July 1 to August 13, 2017 at the Tallinn Art Hall in Estonia.
The Paint by Number Museum
(In collaboration with François Girard-Meunier.) The Paint by Number Museum is an installation which is the result of a one year investigation within the PbN field. Its intention is to stress the possibilities of subversive Paint by Number practices. The exhibition consists in a range of approximatively 50 paintings — partly collected, partly self-produced, a video work (8’25”) and three vitrine tables displaying collected artefacts, books, and research material. We see the PbN Museum as a negotiation between “authentic” objects of documentation and fictional artefacts. The work was also presented as a half an hour lecture which we gave at the occasion of the Brno Biennial’s symposium.
The Paint by Number Museum was part of the 27th Brno Biennial’s OFF Programme 2016, which is conceived as an open space for workshops, interventions and other graphic design presentations. The project was made possible with financial support from the Stimuleringsfonds Creative Industries and the Moravian Gallery in Brno.
