alexander korzer-robinson's memory narratives

Bliss VII by Alexander Korzer-Robinson
The past and how we remember it in our "inner landscape" is the smart starting point for Alexander Korzer-Robinson's beautiful book constructions (via Living Design), which set cut-out illustrations from books within a frame made of the book the illustrations come from. There's a little of the Victorian scrapbook, a little subversive montage and a little (for me) of Joseph Cornell's delicately arranged boxes of found objects in these artful works. Most of all, there's a picture-window view of the jumble sale reality of our supposedly ordered histories, as Korzer-Robinson shows how we reframe our own narratives constantly, without even knowing it.
