Shinro Ohtake 'YMCB'
Center for Contemporary Graphic Art and Tyler Graphics Archive Collection (CCGA), Fukushima 1997
Size : 25,7x 18,3 cm
An artist book produced in 1997 for the solo exhibition "Printing/Painting" at CCGA (Contemporary Graphic Arts Center) in Fukushima. Otake does not perform the act of "drawing", and all pages are composed of existing printed materials and drawings drawn in the past. The absurd cartoons created by cutting and pasting comic books from non-English speaking countries such as Asia and Arabia create an eerie atmosphere.
