Stitch by Aimée Brown

Aimée Brown, Stitch installation view 2009
Stitch is a work of contemporary art assembled from MSVU Art Gallery’s History as a publisher. The artist has tediously reconstructed catalogues to form scrolls, spirals and bricks that morph into an organic form that is in a continuous struggle with gravity.
The process of reorganizing the catalogues into scrolls is a historical de-evolution of the book. The readable code of language mutates into a voluminous abstract form, although the content of the printed pages has not changed deciphering their content has become a daunting task.
Exposed within the work are aesthetic patters and a pallet which is commonly used in the gallery’s publications. Identity consistency.
