Concepts & Perceptions
New York: Béatrice Coron, 2003. Hardcover. Number 3 of 10 copies. This unusual work from Coron comprises four laser cut stainless steel panels with human figures and words such as "existence and evidence" and "conscience and motion" cut from the steel. With a fifth panel as the work's cover. The book can be read as a French or English book as the words are the same in both languages. According to Coron: "It's about life's journey and covers the four angles of being alive, having conscience of it, struggling with what we have, and letting it go in acceptance." Housed in a gray cloth covered box. Size: 11 x 10.5 x 1.5 inches. This item weighs about 10 pounds and may require an extra shipping fee.
Coron describes her book work: "For the last 20 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging. Using papercutting where everything is cut from a single piece of Tyvek, the profusion of individual stories makes a coherent whole world." [From her website] ARTISTB/081921. Fine.
