I’m fascinated by the work of Russian artist Ekaterina Panikanova. Such a mix of nostalgia, ephemera, whimsey (and maybe a little sadness??). I think it would be quite something to see in person. Kudos indeed Ms. Panikanova.
Her work reminded me of an installation I saw in Fredricksburg, Texas while we were traveling around last month… I’m not sure who the artist was for this particular piece, but it was interesting enough that I snapped a photo of it with my phone. But instead of old books, this artist used clipboards with pages from old books. It’s certainly a little more DIY-ish, but still visually interesting and a similar medium used.
