Angela Marzullo - L\'origine
Artist's book stemming from a performance by the Swiss feminist artist, featuring newspaper cut-outs evoking the female sex (limited edition).
During the first 28 days of her exhibition “Feminist energy crisis” at the Geneva Centre of Photography, Angela Marzullo presented a performance consisting of cutting out the pages of the daily edition of the newspaper Le Monde to bring out a form evoking the female sex.
This artist's book, published in 250 copies, contains the 28 pages of the cut-outs, accompanied by a presentation text by Sarah Zürcher.
Limited edition of 250 copies.

Published following the exhibition “Feminist energy crisis” at Centre de la photographie Genève, from January 27 to March 12, 2017.
Since her first works, Angela Marzullo (born 1971 in Zurich, lives and works in Geneva) has explored feminism, making it both the leitmotif of her art, and her personal life, in the manner of avant-garde artists who make no distinction between the two. With her alter ego, Makita, the artist alternates between the role of the feminist intellectual, the witch, or the politically-engaged mother.
