Artist’s Book: Material for Poetry
Join artist Laurette Succar for a creative workshop at Palazzo Mora
Visual artist, painter and author, Laurette Succar is also editor of artists books with more than a hundred titles published since 2009.
The second chapter of this workshop invites participants to explore the multiple forms and materials borrowed by the artist's book. Mixing writing and plastic intervention - drawing, painting, collage, sewing, etching, etc - the book becomes a space for experimentation. Fertile ground for the imagination, it opens up the fields of possibility and sharing.
The artist invites the participants of her workshop to follow the process of developing an artist's book, from its conception to its creation. After a historical and educational introduction, she will provide examples from her private collection of artworks in different formats, textures, bindings etc. The attendees will choose a category of artist's book and shape their own prototype.
