We are working with artist Denise Carbone on a book for an exhibition that we have been invited to participate in. The exhibition will take place in France, 2016. The works included are to be non-traditional structures. Denise is a master at this! The structure we are working with was invented by our friend and colleague, Hedi Kyle. Claire, Denise, and Patty will come together in January in Philadelphia to complete the piece. In the meantime we skype and send images between Philadelphia and Paris.

Monet’s garden. A brief visit and moment of inspiration.

Claire and Patty are working in Paris on the english version of their artist’s book “de l’autre côté” (The Other Side). The little white version is our current dummy.

If we go to the other side is an accordion book that offers the viewer an invitation to travel to the other side of fabricated borders, and to the other side of the page. What do we encounter when we arrive on the other side? Our fears and barriers become opportunities and discoveries as our journey and the book unfold.

« Si nous allions de l’autre côté » est un livre-accordéon qui invite le lecteur à un voyage de l’autre côté des frontières, de l’autre côté de la page. Qu’allons-nous trouver de l’autre côté ? Alors que notre voyage se déroule et que le livre se déplie, nos peurs initiales laissent la place aux belles découvertes.
