“I am a paper person.” (Cecil Touchon)

I found this interesting video on Vimeo by Noor-un-nisa Touchon about Cecil Touchon (Visual Artist, Director of Fluxmuseum and Ontological Museum), who says about himself:
“I am a paper person. Some people love wood or fabric or metal or clay, etc. I love paper and the ink or paint or pencil on it and the patina of use and the feel of the surface and the notations, scribbles, stains and repairs found on it. I am fascinated by the evidence of use and the mysterious nature of its history as a unique voice, a witness to the lives of those people now lost to history who used to own it. As a person interested in paper this would also lead to all things related to paper like a fascination with libraries and archives, documents, postage and correspondence, books, posters, language, organization, files and systems and the architecture and infrastructure built for things related to paper. However, I am a visual artist, so I am also interested in studios and galleries, museums, collectors and collections, art objects, ideas, color, composition and form. Combining all of these things together you have the practice of collage which then grows into a process for creating studies for larger scales paintings. So my own little world is a complex one for which there are not enough hours in the day.” – Cecil Touchon (source)

Collage Tagebuch

A while ago I found an old Rolodex in the net and bought it without knowing, what I am going to creat with it. In the meanwhile I got the idea: It is my collage diary. Each time I finished a collage / project I make a little note and add it. It is nice to see the growing collection on my desk.

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich im Netz ein altes Rolodex gefunden und gekauft, ohne genau zu wissen, was ich damit machen möchte. In der Zwischenzeit habe ich die Idee entwickelt: Es ist nun mein Collage-Tagebuch. Jedesmal wenn ich eine Collage / ein Projekt beendet habe, mache ich mir eine kleine Notiz und füge sie ins Rolodex ein. Es ist sehr schön diese stetig wachsende Sammlung die ganze Zeit auf meinem Schreibtisch stehen zu sehen.

Collaborations No.28 – 32 between Alison Kurke and me

Alison and I are collaborating from time to time, sending each other an envelope with two or three started postcard sized collages to be finished by the other one

Alison und ich arbeiten von Zeit zu Zeit zusammen – wir schicken uns jeweils zwei bis drei postkartengroße Starter, die die andere dann beendet
