Vient de paraître: HIDDEN BY THE SURFACE. Works about marine debris (Güntzel & Debary)

(envoyé par nos collègues Swaantje Güntzel et Octave Debary)

The catalogue HIDDEN BY THE SURFACE is a collaborative project between the German conceptual artist Swaantje Güntzel (*1972) and the French anthropologist Octave Debary, professor at the University Paris Decartes. Debary has been following Güntzels works for several years and has conducted an interview with the artist in her studio in Hamburg. His essay „Trash or tainted culture“ Le déchet ou l´atteinte de la culture analyses Güntzel´s art practise exploring the essential dichotomy between visual pleasure and disturbing global issues with a focus on the anthropogenic pollution of the oceans and marine debris.

The essay comes in the original FRENCH version and has been translated to ENGLISH and GERMAN. The texts are accompanied by a selection of images illustrating Güntzel´s work.
