Aqua Aëris


edition of 3
Artist’s book by Lori Rogers and curator Jennifer Woodbury.

Functioning as both objet and text, this piece distills some of the issues of desire and loss begun in the installation Captive and Absent (aceartinc., 1997). Authorship in the creation of this work is indistinct, as both artist and curator interlay their creative output within the thought and sensibilities of the other.

Artist’s book by June Boyd. Co-Facilitators: Marian Butler, Angela Somerset

This book was made through a laborious process of excavation and creation involving photo reenactments of journal excerpts, assemblage of found/retrieved objects, installed situations, drawings and texts. The synthesis of this project (an artist’s book/residency) translates the place where June works and lives into a mobile and tangible form: a documentation /book /installation. Now in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Artist’s book by Helene Dyck

In Flashpoint, a site-specific installation, Helene Dyck continued to reclaim materials from domestic environments, which metaphorically relate to qualities of endurance and renewal in the formation of identity. Helene drew on the layering of the various components in the installation, including plywood for the book’s cover, for this limited edition, handmade artist’s book.
