This piece presents three framed pages created to appear as if ripped from their book, labeled, and carefully placed on display as objects of another time. The pages have lost their context, their histories removed, and the object begins to take on new meaning. It attempts to tell a narrative, but is ever gaining distance from that story.
Artist BioInge Bruggeman makes artist's books, print work and text-based art work. She has recently finished a 2-month residency in Marseille, France and a year teaching in the Interdisciplinary Arts Department's graduate program at Columbia College Chicago. She is happy to be back home and in her studio in Portland, OR and teaching again at the Oregon College of Art & Craft. Her work is shown and collected internationally, and is owned by institutions such as the Getty Research Institute, British Library, Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, New York Public Library's Special Collections and in artist book collections of Yale, Harvard, Stanford and more. Although recently put to rest, Inge was sole proprietor of Textura, a letterpress printing and book arts studio for over 10 years where she had the great fortune of collaborating with artists, designers, and letterpress enthusiasts to envision their ideas in print and book form.
