Aunt Maud's Scrap Book

Sydney Hermant - Aunt Maud\'s Scrap Book
A cutting edge artist book.
Aunt Maud is a tertiary character from Vladimir Nabokov's 1962 novel, Pale Fire. She is described as a mediocre painter and scrapbook artist. Hermant creates a whole new life for this fictitious character by making Aunt Maud's scrap book in the form of a cutting edge artist book. Hermant takes us on a fractured reimagining of the life of Aunt Maude that winds through the Luddite rebellion, oil crises in the Middle East and a full on Merman formal ball.
The publication is part of the series of artist's projects edited by Christoph Keller.
Sydney Hermant is a Vancouver based artist, writer and curator. She was the Director/Curator of the Or Gallery until 2005.
Edited by Kathy Slade.
