Print of the Month  photo

Verena Sieber-Fuchs (born 1943) turns recycled materials and commercial printed ephemera into one-off jewellery and decorative objects. This neck-piece is made of hundreds of individual frames from a 16mm advertising film. Each frame was cut out from the reel and briefly burnt to singe the edges of the image. The frames were then woven together in random sequences, disrupting and scrambling the original narrative.
