Description

INR2016
Selection from I Never Read, Independent Art Book Fair Basel, 2016.

This series of drawings in Coral Gables is a succession of architectural forms built by a collage of patterns drawn on paper. Elements repeat, overlap, and form multiple fixtures reminiscent of individual houses, swimming pools and furniture.

Located in Florida, Coral Gables was founded by a real estate agent, George Merrick in the 1920s. In 1899 his parents, Solomon and Althea Merrick, had bought a plot of 160 acres on which they had built their home and the family farm plants, banana and grapefruit. On the death of his father, George sold the first lots to found Coral Gables, a city in the city of Miami.

On the example of Merrick’s Utopia, Vanessa Dziuba builds isolated dwellings, designs nested in geometric shapes, imitation-limestone pools resembling caves like a Venetian Pool, roof tiles adorning houses with loggias and courtyards .

Coral Gables foreshadows gated communities: those closed neighborhoods, homes surrounded by walls, fences and video equipment, and the owners of these remote private cities isolated from their environment.

Stitch-bound, softcover with hard colour plates, colour.
