Wow. I think this sculpture is really cool. I’ve been seeing a lot of sculptures carved into old books recently. Someday I’d like to try it.
Canadian born Maskull Lasserre has created ‘Incarnate’a stunning human skull sculpture carved into books. Lasserre’s drawings and sculptures explore the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility. Elements of nostalgia, accident, humour, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected. There can be no doubt that this work follows that trend and will form part of his exhibition at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Artnext month.
