Jesper Fabricius

Kunsthaefte Nr. 13

Fotoband des Dänischen Künstlers Jesper Fabricius.

Fabricius publishes small handmade artist booklets that range from 8 pages to 20 pages in length under theimprint Space Poetry. One ongoing series of books called Kunsthaefte is currently 14 books strong and counting.

Using snippets from existing printed images from magazines he emphasizes relationships of color and texture while giving hints to the original image’s content. For instance, many of the crudely cut snippets seem to have derived from porn magazines or books published in the late 1970’s and 1980’s so after Jesper’s scissors are through, an image might draw your attention incidental details like to part of someone’s face and a painting hanging on the wall behind them instead of the act of sex.

Kunsthaefte nr.13 shows heads of differen people. This is an interesting one as the individual pictures are common daily expressions except you notice that some (maybe all) are taken from images of people’s faces while engaged in sex.
