Artist books

The RAR books, transposed into a work of textile art, are linked to each other, conceptually by a perpetual narrative and materially by traces of threads and seams. Complementary and each dedicated to a particular aspect of RAR’s research, they therefore collect its themes, telling the mystery that passes through them: the literary fragments separately collected and brought together again are harbingers of a universal voice, which details the understanding of reality and opens new perspectives of meaning, going beyond the specific plot. Starting from a work of art, Federica Patera and Andrea Sbra Perego activate this sequence of connections within the five artist’s books. They present the link that exists in their art between word and creative gesture, between speech and action, once again impressing on the fabric secret truths hidden in literature.
