Dear Marcel

Dear Marcel (IV)
C-type print
Edition of 3

For the series Dear Marcel, Rafalski used a library’s collection of books as a source of images. Her pieces constitute a “remixing” of material from the library’s collection, forging new, playful connections through collage techniques. These images portray the modernist architecture of Marcel Breuer, playfully juxtaposed with underwater sea-life, creating new contexts of meaning. Rafalski invokes the ghosts of the modernist era, inviting them to join her in conversation, even if only one in which communication occurs through book pages.
