Product Description

In a rimless remix of bygone visual worlds Vanessa Piffaretti’s collages combine the incredible with the familiar, the fanciful with the tangible. The apparent transparency of her visual fabric is complemented by Tine Melzer’s precise texts that interweave the visual and verbal fragments witha peculiar vocabulary and glossary.

The collages for this publication were created especially by Vanessa Piffaretti. These were then used by Tine Melzer as a basis for the vocabulary. Each collage was individually put through a subjective process of naming in which terms were assigned to all recognizable objects in the collages. An alphabetical list of these words was compiled - one which toys with the conventions of a standard glossary and pays homage to Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons.
