RA Edition Couvert Petra Börner
by Petra Börner
This new RA Edition is based on a pair of collages Börner created in 2019. Originally hand-cut in paper using a scalpel, the incisions mimic the organic movements of drawing. Layering paper on top of paper, the forms create positive and negative space, breaking down the shape of the body as pattern, and exploring identity.
