Project Description

This sculptural artist book was realized during a project with Jacques Fournier. The master bookbinder invited a group of students to respond to his work and guided us through the year-long production of our individual pieces. CARGO is a response to le 6 avril 1944: Fournier’s work is a traditional book container that, when opened, reveals it contains no book. CARGO turns this on its head, obscuring a more traditionally bound book within a non-traditional container. This work deals with epigenetics and inherited trauma and served as a cathartic exercise in self-healing. It was part of the Boundless Dialogues Exhibition, April 2018 at Webster Library, Concordia University.
