J'aime les Marionettes

Paul-Louis Mignon / Jean Mohr


Published by Éditions Rencontre, 1962, 7.8 x 5.3 inches

Dust jacket by Charlotte de Mezamat, ink on paper, approx. 23 inches long

The exhibition consists of a series of books curated by the artist, each of which has had its dust-jacket replaced by a unique work-on-paper. 

Mezamat describes these books as environments, locations she has spent time in. Motifs and impressions were drawn from the interiors of each book, focusing on recurring forms across the selection; threads, ropes and nets are brought to the surface.
