paper trail

July 13, 2020

At first glance, I thought these were ceramic, but they’re actually made from the pulped remains of unwanted and abandoned books. Ben Branagan is the artist, and his “monuments” have such a brilliant sense of humour. They look both modern, and pre-historic. “Faced with a pile of abandoned books, I was interested in creating an alternative archive of the information these now redundant containers once held, returning them to an object making tradition that is prehistoric, pre-literate. Transforming one kind of container or vessel into another.”
