Turtles

It is the very act of ?paging through? sculpture after sculpture, in this publication, that powerfully accentuates the texture of the materials, ranging from alabaster to steatite. Materials that have been transubstrantiated into images, conceived by the artist to make our gaze wander over the stone surfaces and our mind wander through the disorienting awareness of a disallowed spaciality. Turtles. Marie Lund. Paperback.This monograph on the artist Marie Lund comprises a two-sided reflection ? the first mute, iconographic; the second speculative, text-based ? on how we approach sculpture when it is reproduced on paper, or rather, how we approach an image of three-dimensional reality when we are offered a single, flat vantage point. It is the very act of ?paging through? sculpture after sculpture, in this publication, that powerfully accentuates the texture of the materials, ranging from alabaster to steatite. Materials that have been transubstrantiated into images, conceived by the artist to make our gaze wander over the stone surfaces and our mind wander through the disorienting awareness of a disallowed spaciality.
