Rubberbanded

Books have always been a source material for Fern Apfel. With Rubberbanded, the artist takes four books – one held together with a red rubberband – and creates a tension by adopting the Japanese chop mark, and somewhat comically inserting baking directions inside them. Apfel’s books are always old and a bit beat up, quietly suggesting the symbiotic relationship between our past and our present.
