44 – Carmen WinantUnited States (1983)
Carmen Winant’s artwork involves diligently collecting images and experimenting with collage techniques which she then uses to investigate the dynamics of ‘feminist survival and revolt’. With her innovative Arrangements project, the Laureate of the Images Vevey Book Award 2021/2022 rearranged entire pages taken from magazines or artists’ books. Drawing from a collection of over 2000 pages, she assembled them in pairs according to a shared topic or form, or at random. Carmen Winant reveals their content in a surprising way, with new editorial purposes in mind. Placed side by side, these torn pages shape new relational narratives.
This artist presents her project Arrangements with an eponymous exhibit in Le Salon of L’Appartement – Espace Images Vevey an area usually assigned to spotlighting a book and also outdoors on Avenue Paul-Cérésole.
