How a German/Greeck dictionary, edition 1888 meets 2021 ………..
From a book found in the ruins of Eressos village (Lesbos, Greece) , Gélébart , who came with her stock of thousands of cut-outs from Italy to realise large scale collages for a show in Milan ended up using the book as the departure of her work.
The book IS an exhibition in itself. A nomad exhibition , like the artist/author.
Each page , such as a poem with the simplicity of a Japanese haiku has a surprise effect.
Sometimes there are connected ideas, sometimes none.
Sometimes the connection is from one age to another.
The minute cut out works makes the doing a meditation.
The enhancing gold touch come from chocolates wraps
Turning the pages is going from one promise to another promise.
