Adan & Eva
23.04.2012 to 29.09.2012
An impressive graphic designer, Carla Perri continues in the Artistic Residencies Program with a project that came to life in Castelfranco, during her stay in Italy where she worked in thr Artist Book Laboratory.
The project she will develop in colaboration with us is an object book based in Mark Twain's exquisite text "Adan and Eva's Diary". Twain's story, which includes Adan's diary and Eva's diary, refers whith humor and irony to the differences between men and women, thei looks upon life, relationships, objects and attitudes upon diverse situations which difference each other.
The axis of the proposal is to brake with the narrative sequence, creating duality and paralelism between both diaries in an object book in wich che will also include images in order to create a "visual game".
