Friday Night Flicks: Body Chronology

Tonight’s flick is from the Bainbridge Island Museum series Artists’ Books Unshelved, and explores two works from the Cynthia Sears Artist’s Books Collection. The books shown are About Pearl by Robbin Ami Silverberg and Hair by Sun Young Kang.

 

 

I highly recommend that you spend a little time this weekend checking out Silverberg’s website, or looking at more work by Kang here, or both.

About Byopia Press

I have been working in the book arts field for more than twenty years, and operating Byopia Press with my husband David since the late 1990s. I began producing artist's books and altered books in 2004. I also create prints and drawings that are frequently text-inspired or text-based.

    I especially like the wrinkled skin/paper book. Fragile paper is evocative of skin when it thins with age and easily tears.

      I used to volunteer in a long term care residence and some of the older people had to be handled extremely carefully. I also remember my grandmother having skin like parchment, almost translucent.

        I have a persistent memory of an emergency room visit where an elderly woman was in the next cubicle with injuries from bumping into her coffee table. I could see nothing, but I could hear the conversation between her and the nurse. It’s probably more horrible in my imagination.
