ALOÏS GODINAT, Lacération et Chevauchement, 2012
edition 150
published by Wallpapers by Artists, Lyon, France                                         € 150,-   December 2012

Aloïs Godinat’s artistic practice draws on art historical elements, effecting minimal changes to evoke new meanings and contexts. Godinat is obviously interested in the detail – both in his choice of colours, structures, textures, and in his treatment of the fragment, the image or typography at hand. Here a wallpaper edition titled ‘Tear out and overlap’ (trans. ‘Lacération et Chevauchement’) refers to what is factual to be seen and literally to be done when one hangs wallpaper.
