Never this without that – Exhibition

I decided to replace some objects with others that would “add something” to them and work with them, hence the name : never this without that. Some of the objects are even unusable or useless without the additional one. What is the purpose of a stapler without staples ? There are also personal things, such as the prayer book that I have associated with my mother’s chain with some Jewish religion symbols. Even if I haven’t finished everything yet, I have tried this week in my process to concentrate more on the whole page without putting too much margins and consider the double page spread.

  1. Working with your compositions and spreads has helped emphasise your images, the way that you’ve combined the old and new objects in a way that the correlation is clear yet they are still strong on their own. The paint stroke on page 5 is a nice way to break up all of the images and kinda reminds me of this work (, maybe something to explore at some point.

    The repeated images of page 3 are pleasing to look at, you could consider other ways of image manipulation and exploring that. I think you’ve definitely achieved your goal for this week and will be interesting to see how you take these compositions into future work.

  2. I quite like your concept of never this without that. I totally agree with you. Everything you’ve chosen all sort of having your memories or feelings. It’s like a bond between you and the objects. The paint stroke on Page 5 has a very nice pattern and structure which can also be explored more such as giving a movement on your page spread, having different textures or colour of paint strokes can also provide different feelings and atmosphere. Page 8 and Page 9 are really lovely. I also quite like the handwriting on Page 11 and 15, looking very personal. Looking forward to see how you develop for the next week.
