Description

Croissants and Architecture is an artist book by Nicole Wermers that presents an absurd juxtaposition of portraits of croissants with sheets of actual sandpaper. By combining both the front and back of sandpaper with the images of the croissants, Wermers creates a thought-provoking tableau, which explores the changing dynamics between two and three dimensions, production and consumption, visceral discomfort and sensual pleasure. This edition, which will eventually destroy itself from the inside, offers a humorous comment on the materials of sculpture and on our life-style obsessed culture.
