About this title

Synopsis:

Through her whimsical works made of paper and wire, Berlin-based artist Christina von Bitter reenvisions houses, musical instruments, items of dress, and other everyday objects as ambiguous and poetic entities. Released of their physical capacities, the delicate skins left behind by these objects seem almost to defy gravity. Ranging in size from relatively modest to more than twenty feet tall, the featherweight sculptures allow for the effortless passage of both light and air. Beautifully illustrated, this volume offers the first comprehensive overview of Bitter’s artistic career to date. Spanning fifteen years, the paperworks pictured provide insight into her experimental approach, the multifaceted nature of her work, and her expansive interpretation of three-dimensionality.

About the Author:
