Karin Schneider — Transitional Line


Transitional Line by Karin schneider, is an artist book, 8.5 x 11 in, 21 pages, black RISO, japanese binding, enclosed in a string tied envelope, numbered edition of 50, made for the exhibition Descartes' Daughter at Swiss Institute (2013), curated by Piper Marshall.

Transitional Line has a hybrid form. It fuses criticism with an autobiographical touch. The undertone is a phantasmatic dialogue with Structuration of the Self, the last body of work by Lygia Clark. The text produces visual forms sparkling its content. It is an experiment at forming phantom-signs.
