New Book – RAGDOLLS PARADE

parade_book

RAGDOLLS are multimaterial creatures made with scraps, fragments that can divide, rotate and assemble again simulating living movement. Then there is an island, a love story and an evil Plague Doctor trying to collect all the multiplicity that those mixed-up forms of life can bring in a striped, jail-like establishing.

Original music sheets from the early 1900’s moves this little chimeras’ parade at the Rag time.

RAGDOLLS PARADE is a book that comes out at the end of a process which lasted more than a year, starting in Colombia with a theater performance, and then a six meters drawn roll that illustrates it.

From the  flowing continuity of  a roll, eyes, arms, legs and bodies are extracted and isolated by a new Victor Frankenstein. Reproducing and combining them, hidden creatures, movements and stories are revealed.

The whole work develops as a big detournement and cut-up operation by moving and implanting new elements in old and “al-ready made” structures, making the book as a ragdoll itself, pages and images dancing at their own music.

THROUGH THE RABBIT – laboratory

Some pics about children laboratory we had @VARSI Gallery on March, 8th

during the Through the Rabbit event.

Participants were invited not only to read the book but to understand also how book was conceived and realised

through the specific technique of cut-up .

By this new level of comprehension, they became then able to interact with story and create a new, personal version of it.

In collaboration with S.C.O.S.S.E association http://www.scosse.org
