Artists’ Book Competition : Winner: A Space Between Us

Triptych volumes of text are displayed. One of volumes is open, showing handmade paper and recessed compartment.


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 grandmorther at the same ages. Beneath the pages are recessed compartments containing found objects.
