Françoise Sullivan : Trajectoires resplendissantes / Radiant Trajectories (Bilingual) (Hardcover)
About this item
Since the 1940s, Françoise Sullivan has created a vibrant and voluminous oeuvre of remarkable versatility. Constantly renewed by a rare inventiveness, her work has always remained faithful to the principles of freedom and engagement that she embraced during her early career in the Automatiste movement. Inspired by the great European and Native North American mythological traditions, passionate about art and poetry, and influenced by the time she spent in New York, Italy, Ireland and Greece, Sullivan has, in her boundless curiosity, never stopped experimenting with form and colour, gesture and movement, figuration and abstraction - not only in sculpture, performance, dance and photography, but also most decisively in painting. Sullivan’s trajectories, so radiant and and so liberating, enlighten our recent history as well as form an integral part of our present. This splendidly illustrated publication features dozens of works and documents that are contextualized and elucidated by an original essay that revisits the multiple trajectories of the artist's singular career. As much an reference book as monograph, the book also brings together several of Françoise Sullivan's own writings, some of which have never before been published. She who, in 2017, still works in her studio every day and continues to think - and think of herself - in and through art, invites us to participate in the vital relationship between art, memory and the world around us. In English and French.
