Ragnar Kjartansson. Me and My Mother
Edited by Lorenzo Giusti and Arabella Natalini, Me and My Mother is a flipbook created in conjunction with the eponymous Ragnar Kjartansson exhibition at EX3 Contemporary Art Center in Florence. The book recreates the three videos in the project, dividing them into a sequence of images that gradually change from one page to the next, to highlight the three key elements in the work: the maternal figure, an apparently scornful action, and chronological spacing that underscores the inexorable flow of time.
Critical texts by Lorenzo Giusti, Arabella Natalini and Markus Thor Andresson.
