A Space Between Us

Artist: Lisa Tristan Mellot (AKA Elizabeth Mellott-Carreon)

Each of the twelve volumes of A Space Between Us consists of fired clay covers that enclose handmade paper pages. The pages open as a triptych to reveal contrasting statements about how the artist related with her mother at various ages and how her mother related with the artist’s grandmother at the same ages. Beneath the pages are recessed compartments containing found objects.

Find A Space Between Us in the UNT Catalog.
