Cuaderno de artista de Joan Fontcuberta
Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
Gastropoda by Joan Fontcuberta is a series of 16 images that won the 1998 National Photography Prize and are coming to light for the first time in this Artist’s Notebook. This work examines the metabolism of the image and starts with a fortuitous discovery: the series shows invitations from museums and galleries that the author receives by post in his house, transformed by the action of voracious wild snails who became, in Fontcuberta’s words, “co–authors of the book”. This delicate work accompanies volume Q of the Matadormagazine.
